madonna visits orphanage in malawi

madonna, as you might have heard, is in the process of adopting a baby from malawi. the one-year-old boy named david was flown last month to london. the american pop music star and her husband have a home there. madonna is married to film director guy ritchie and is the biological mother of two children.

david's mother died soon after giving birth. his father, yohane banda, a farmer, said he could not care for the baby. so mister banda placed david in an orphanage.

madonna recently gave millions of dollars to support efforts to help orphans in malawi. the southern african country is one of the poorest nations in the world.

voice two:

madonna says she wants to give david a better life. but some people criticized her for adopting a child whose father is still alive, even if the father did agree to it. and some child psychologists and social workers said children do best if they are well cared for in their own homeland.
