When adoption becomes a fashion. .
I read about Madonna adopting a child and all the fuss she encounter in that case.
What came to my mind when I first read about it was; “Now you see. . .It will become a fashion among the rich and famous to adopt children, because they want to copycat Angelina Jolie.”
This is a dangerous trend.
Angelina adopted her children without a lot of coverage and fuss, just because that was her personality in her work in Unicef. She even adopted the children although she was single.
After my opinion, if other rich and famous people want to walk her shoes. .
Why not “adopt on distance”? Meaning. . . You make a personal deal concerning one or several children in an orphanage and agree on a personal coverage of food, health-care, clothes and education of that/ those children, while they still are in their own environment. You visit them and take them for holiday, etc.
To adopt because of fame or to take attention is wrong. Maybe Madonna is serious, but she has her own kids and could afford to do things in a different way. Was it really the child’s best she was thinking about, or was it her own vanity?
If I had her means, I would have made a deal with the whole orphanage. To once a month send clothes, food and equipment to cover all the children in the orphanage. Give regular visits to ensure the children are taken well care of etc.
In stead, she took one child and makes a nursery-room more costly that
US $ 20 000,-
That’s insane, if you ask me. . . . what is your opinion??
