Madonna’s adoption going forward


Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie’s efforts to adopt a Malawi boy are finally moving ahead despite a setback earlier this month. A social worker from the African country will travel to the U.S. to assess the family, even though the trip had previously been denied by their government. People Magazine reports:

“There has been a change of mind by my government minister,” Penstone Kilembe, the director of Malawi’s Child Welfare Services, said. “I am expected to spend two weeks.” Previously Kilembe had been refused an exit visa to make the trip, and had warned that this might jeopardize the Ritchies’ efforts to adopt David.

Sounds like a happy ending for this family. It’s nice to see a young boy taken into a good home and offered a chance at a better life. I’m just wondering who this Madonna person they keep talking about is. Is she somebody’s famous grandma or something? Because I’m drawing a blank here.
