David meets his father in Malawi
Yesterday David Banda met his father Yohane Banda for this first time since he was adopted by Madonna in 2006. With all the discussion and media reports about the controversial attempts to adopt a second child in Malawi, it’s interesting to note what Yahane said after meeting his son. Here are some quotes from the Daily Mail:
“It’s amazing how David has grown; I can’t believe he is the same small and sickly baby we left at Home of Hope.”
“He seems to be a polite boy for he asked if he could sit on my lap. Then he started playing with my nose; I don’t know why.”
“I sometimes shudder to think that David could also have met the same fate had Madonna not adopted him. I am really grateful to her for saving David from possible early death.”
