Rejected Madonna

Madonna's bid to adopt another Malawi child was reportedly rejected. Her ex-husband Guy Ritchie said in an interview that he was saddened because he believes Madonna is a great mother.

I don't know Madonna. And true, between a life of poverty in an orphanage somewhere, i'd rather rich people just give these kids a home, even if they will be absentee parents. At least they'd be given good nutrition and education which can allow them to make good decisions about their future. At least they will have options and opportunities to exercise these options.

Still, just because someone's rich and wants another kid doesn't make her a good parent. And though I don't expect parents to stay with their kids 24/7, I also really frown upon those who do have kids but let their nannies raise these kids.
