Don't cry for me, Argentina...

We interrupt this blog for a full-blown rant...

Ok, so now Madonna is blaming the media about all the negative attention she's getting for her adoption and that it's going to 'dissuade' people from adopting from Africa.

I guess she's just pushing it out of her mind that she basically 'jumped the queue' in adopting this little boy by not paying attention to their rules (ie., living in the country for 18 months). The least she could do is respect the country where she's adopting from and pay heed to the rules. If she didn't want to live there or deal with the rules, they are there for a reason, then she should have chosen another country.

Also I find it interesting that now the father is quoted in Time Magazine as saying that he's for the adoption. Just yesterday or the day before, he was saying that he didn't understand what adoption meant and believed that David would come back to him after being educated and raised with Madonna. After reading both articles, it seems that the birth father is still confused about what adoption really means. He says he understands but at times he talks about how his son is going to come back to him.

Anyways, back to Madonna, if she didn't want media attention, she didn't have to make a point of announcing what she was doing. Personally I don't remember a big fufura when Angelina Jolie adopted Zahara or Maddox.

I'm glad she went on Oprah to clear the air. I just hope it opens the doors to a mega million amount of children in Africa who are in need of a home, love, food and education.
