Malawi Orphan to Madonna: "You Are Our God"

Posted by Sylar On Thursday, October 29, 2009

Madonna has been branded a ''God'' by one of the children at the Malawi orphanage she adopted son David from, Contactmusic reports.
The singer - who adopted the boy, now four, from the African country in October 2006 when he was 13 months old - visited the centre where he used to live this week and the children couldn't hold back their praise for her.
One child said to her: "You are our God. Where could we have been without you?"
Workers at the Home Child Care Centre in Mchinji, Malawi, also spoke highly of the 51-year-old star about the way she has been raising David.

The centre's director, Lucy Chipeta, said: "David is too young to understand... but for us who remember the sickly tiny little baby of 2006, it was hard to hold back tears, including Madonna."
Orphanage founder Thomson Chipeta added to Us Weekly magazine: "He is so boisterous! I can't believe he is the same chap of 2006."

    God? That's a bit much, even if her boyfriend's name is Jesus.

    Well I believe in countries some people pray to various gods to help them in their time of need for w.e. So in this case Madonna was like a miracle to them possibly after praying for something good to happen to their lives. So it's not that big of a stretch. Some people pray when they are in hard times. Me I look to Madonna listen to her music and videos etc. and she gives me hope and happiness. Ive said she was my God too before. Shes a light that has shown me the way.

    I think it's so nice what she has done in Malawi and that she adopted David!

    she is doing what God has chosen her to do, so she is certainly being 'god-like'. Madonna could chose to do MANY things with her time, money and celebrity. She could chose to do NOTHING like sooooooooooooooooo many celebrities. i'm glad Madonna is committed to Malawi. she seems happy when she is there.
