madonna-family.0.0.0x0.400x430Madonna’s former husband, Guy Ritchie, has expressed his sadness over her failed adoption of a child from Malawi and praised her as a “great mum”.

A judge at Malawi’s High Court in Lilongwe rejected the singer’s application to adopt Mercy James, a four-year-old girl, ruling that the child should remain in her home country.
In a statement, Ritchie said: “Madonna is a fantastic and loving mother who cares deeply about her own children, and children who may need additional help and support.

“I fully supported Madonna in her decision to apply for this adoption, and I am saddened that her application has been rejected. She is motivated only by being a caring parent who seeks to share some of the advantages and opportunities that her life has given her. This time it did not work out, but there will be other opportunities and I wish her well in them. She is a great mum.”

    Are we sure he wasn't sarcastic? that comment can be a low (funny, but low) at Madonna...

    I am rather sad about this failed adoption...If Madonna couldn't do it, who could then? So, the policy is for her to be kept in an orphanage and not with a loving family... We definitely live in a stupid world!

    I feel so sad for her :o. It's not fair! Everyone is using her fame against her. And this statement proves she ISN'T using her money and status, but she really WANTS to have this child. I mean, Guy has been with Madonna for what? 8 years? I think they should listen to him, because right now, he's the only one who knows her the best! I think she IS a great mum, and she deserves it to have this child..

    But she can support the girl without being her mother.
    She can make the girls life better.


  5. madonnalover Said,

    True... but she isn't going to stay in Malawi forever, so it would be hard to be a mother to her without even seeing her... I just think it's stupid that she can't adopt this girl. I feel sad for her.


  6. chris Said,

    But she can support her with money ,
    visits etc .

    But yes,its sad for Madonna, but i am glad,
    she has no celebritie bonus !

    I think she can help the whole village/country/whatever with her money instead of choosing one child above the rest.


  8. Anonymous Said,

    ya i agree, she should donate money to the village to help instead of picking one kid.
