The father of the Malawi orphan that Madonna wishes to adopt now says that he is entirely in favor of Madonna taking full permanent custody. This is in contrast to a statement he issued only a few days ago, where he said he wished to retain parental rights. But, in an entirely predictable turn of events, the father says he was goaded into making the statement (against the adoption) by non-governmental child rights organizations who are suing to prevent the adoption. He has now fled to his sister’s residence to avoid the media attention.
What a ridiculous situation, where a child-rights activist group(s) would attempt to force the father into making these statements. In all the press, they are never specifically named, but I would love to know their names so I know never, ever to donate to them.
