Madonna’s Adoption Ruling Postponed

Madonna’s adoption ruling has been postponed. . . again. It was expected to wrap up today, but as things go that should have been finalized yesterday (and by yesterday I mean last year), it wasn’t.

It looks like the Human Rights Commission has a bit of investigating left to do, since Malawian laws don’t grant non-residents adoption rights in the country. Regardless of the drama, lawyer Alan Chinula stated that “I’m confident that the adoption will go through because my client has met all the requirements and the government is satisfied that she qualifies.”

Confident or not, things are looking messy. Another hearing will be scheduled for next week.
