Now that Davie has officially arrived in London to join his new family, Madonna has finally issued a statement about her actions over the last 2 weeks in response to the criticism she has received from some organisations protesting the adoption and questioning whether or not she bypassed process to make it happen:
"After learning that there were over one million orphans in Malawi, it was my wish to open up our home and help one child escape an extreme life of hardship, poverty and in many cases death, as well as expand our family. We have gone about the adoption procedure according to the law like anyone else who adopts a child. Reports to the contrary are totally inaccurate. The procedure includes an l8-month evaluation period, after which time we hope to make this adoption permanent. This was not a decision or commitment that my family or I take lightly. My heartfelt thanks for all the good wishes I have received and I hope the press will allow my family some room for us to experience the joy we feel to have David home."
Holy cheese - I read that last part and a lump actually formed in my throat. Did my bitch run away again or am I just hormonal?
And is he the cutest thing ever, or what?
