I can't wait to see how many nasty comments everybody makes about Madonna helping to build a health clinic in Africa. Why can't she start here, why help Africans, she's a publicity whore, blah blah blah

Drama Continues!    

I don't get it why these so called "Stars" are jumping on the band wagon to adopt foreign kids...we have a bunch of them in every state (although not all babies) just waiting for a loving home???? What's the big deal about adopting from these other countries?
Don't American children deserve the same chance?

#2 Does it really matter?? Aren't we all part of the human race? Shouldn't we all be concerned about helping other human beings no matter the color of their skin. I don't know if you are Christian or not but do you think Jesus would be saying that?? Where is it written that if you live in a certain country, that is the only people that should get your kindness, love and philanthropy. Isn't there enough hate in the world???

I think she has always been on the receiving end of some un-necessary harsh criticism...Good for her and what she's doing.

I think Madonna should be applauded for her efforts in helping these children in Africa. I am also happy to see Lola with her mother during this special spiritual journey. If only more children in America got the opportunity to see how "good" they have it. They might stop killing each other and respect one another a little more.

#2, Monday lives in England. Why would it make the most sense for her to adopt a baby from America? Reason #7,903 why people hate Americans.

#7, I get what you're saying about the human race. It's true... why does it matter where they're adopted from?

newsflash    

Bitch/hag Madonna's helping to build a health clinic in Africa.

Why can't she start here? There's plenty of kids need help in the U.S. Why help Africans?

She's a publicity whore. That's why.

#2... Very sad that there are need children in America in 2007. We couldn't even help people in New Orleans never mind children.

If our government spent half the money that is being spent on the illegal war in Iraq we could wipe out poverty and fund better health care.

Madonna is doing her part when will our government step up?

mind your business    

As a person who works for an adoption service, I would like to point out that adopting in the US has become a very long and tedius process, often times held up by the birth parent not wanting to terminate rights, then there are the home studies and so forth and so on. Then there are the children who are stuck on the fostercare rollercoaster. It is a hard process on the children and those trying to adopt. I have encounted many families who have tried to adopt in the good 'ol US of A only to be told they cannot have the child due to some obsure reason or relative that wants to collect a check for them. Check the facts before you judge someone.

Also for those of you asking why adopt children from other counties why not? Who gets to decided a child should not have a home base upon the fact that they don' t liver here? Grow-up. If are not going to adopt youself then don't critize those who do. Every child in the world deserves to LOVED and CHERISHED , no matter where they are from.

Grow up and mind your own business, you will live longer.
