Madonna Adoption or Collection?

Well, the "material girl" is at it again. She is going back to Malawi, this time to possibly adopt a daughter.

We are expected to be in court on Monday to file for a possible adoption," her lawyer, Alan Chinula, said Thursday.

Under Malawi law, adoptions are typically off-limits to single or divorced parents. Madonna is both; her 12-year-old daughter, Lourdes, was born when the superstar singer was unmarried, and she split from British director Guy Ritchie last year.

It is like going to African countries and adopting children has become a recreational sport for some celebrities. I guess they feel they are "saving" them from this horrid life of poverty and hopelessness. I know money will surely not be an issue, but I wonder about the support that these kids have coming into a strange country and being separated for people they know.

Any thoughts?
