”It’s a good thing that Madonna’s doing”
“It’s easy for critics to knock celebrities who choose to adopt, but it’s a good thing that Madonna’s doing. Not only is she highlighting the plight of orphans in Africa, she’s also giving this little girl the chance of a better life.”
Mother-of-two and Spice Girl member Mel B, Madonna’s attempt to open her home to four-year-old Malawian girl Mercy James.
Mel – who has two daughters Phoenix Chi, 10 and Angel Iris, two – also revealed she would have considered adoption if she hadn’t been able to have biological kids saying: “Personally, because I can have children naturally, adoption isn’t something I would consider. But if it was a struggle to have a child naturally then I’d be all for adopting. What struck a chord with me is that Madonna plans to keep the child in touch with her roots in Africa. I don’t think it matters where a child comes from – it’s about giving a baby or a child a family, love and a fresh start.”
