Singer Sir Elton John has said he’d love to adopt a child with partner David Furnish after he visited an orphanage in the Ukraine for HIV-positive children and had his heart captured by 14-month-old baby boy Lev.
“David and I have always talked about adoption, David always wanted to adopt a child and I always said ‘no’ because I am 62 and I think because of the travelling I do and the life I have, maybe it wouldn’t be fair for the child.
“But having seen Lev today, I would love to adopt him. I don’t know how we do that but he has stolen my heart. And he has stolen David’s heart and it would be wonderful if we can have a home. I’ve changed my mind today.”
62-year-old Elton is unsure if he is able to adopt a Ukranian child due to it’s treaty with UK but hopes due to David’s Canadian roots that they “might be able to work through something like that.”
