Madonna Accepts Judge's Adoption Ruling
(celebspin.com ) Madonna will accept a High Court ruling that allows a coalition of human-rights groups to assist in judging whether she is fit to adopt Malawian 1-year-old David Banda, says her lawyer Alan Chinula.
In his Wednesday, 29 Novemder, ruling in the Malawian capital, Judge Andrew Nyirenda said the human-rights organizations could be viewed as friends of the court and could join in the judicial review of the interim custody order he granted to Madonna and her husband, Guy Ritchie.
Chinula said the challenge would help clear up Malawi's antiquated laws on adoption and that Madonna's case would serve as a guiding case for future adoptions.
David's biological father, Yohane Banda, 32, said Thursday, 30 November, he hoped the high-profile case would open the door to easier adoptions of Malawian children by foreigners.
He added: We are happy here. I know Madonna loves the child.
