Madonna and Guy Ritchie to adopt child - or children - next month?
A source close to the couple has told the People newspaper: “Originally Madonna and Guy planned to adopt only one child. But when they were told that might mean breaking up a family unit they immediately said they would take siblings or twins if that was the right thing to do.”
“They want the children to be as young as possible but are prepared to take kids up to the age of four.”
“And they are also willing to consider a child with special needs arising from being abandoned in an orphanage.”
The couple are planning to spend a week in the country next month with the hope of leaving at the end of the time with their new child or children. The source added: “It will be a very hectic trip with each day packed with meetings, but they are both really excited. They understand the implications of adopting a child from another country and are confident they can provide a loving and stable home.”
“They are determined to make sure their child or children learn about their roots.”
Their children, Lourdes and Rocco, are apparently “also really excited ex about having a brother or sister - or even both.”
