Madonna talks about David's adoption
Just because Madonna is an international superstar doesn’t mean she’s had any special treatment while trying to adopt David Banda, 2 ½. She told The Today show,
I have been fingerprinted about 20 times and undergone psychological evaluations.I’ve been visited every six weeks by social workers who make sure that you’re being a good parent and that David’s health is thriving and who ask you all kinds of invasive questions.We have not even been granted the full adoption — it’s supposed to be happening in the next month — so I’ve been a foster parent for 18 months.
The 49-year-old described the whole process as "just too difficult — too traumatic," adding,
I don’t see how anybody who really understands how complicated it is to adopt a child could say that someone chose to do that as a fad.
Madonna is also mum to Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, 11 ½, her daughter with personal trainer turned actor Carlos Leon, 41, and Rocco John Ritchie, 7 ½, her son with husband Guy Richie, 39.
