Former singer Sinitta and children Magdelena, 5, and Zac, 4, took a family holiday to Barbados recently after it was revealed that she will no longer be adopting a third child as her adoption plans have fallen through. Speaking to Hello! magazine she said:
“I am very, very sad to say that, no it does not look as though I can have this baby now. It seems that I would need to be able to not work for 18 months to meet Social Services standards and, as I have two children to support,I can’t do that.”
She also explained how the whole situation had come as a huge blow to her because from the moment she’d found out that the birth mother would not be able to keep the child she thought of him/her as her own.
“Rightly or wrongly, I started to look on the baby as mine and felt an overwhelming emotional attatchment. It’s been hard to pick myself back up and not be depressed, because I really believed that this baby, my children and I would all be together. But I have to want what is best for the new baby, and it does bring me comfort to know [he/she] will go to someone who is able to stay at home and be with them, as I was with my two.”

TV presenter Davina McCall has revealed that she and husband Matthew Robertson would love to foster or adopt a child one day. Although the pair have ruled out trying for another child they would love to help someone less fortunate than themselves.
Speaking in Now magazine Davina said:
“We’ve drawn a line under that. No more children. Matthew and I have discussed it. If there was an accident and I got pregnant, it would be a lovely mistake. But you will all know that’s exactly what it is. If I stepped down from work massively in the future – which I’m hoping not to do for a good few years yet – I would be interested in fostering. We’ve got a beautiful family and great kids – we’ve got a lot to offer. Matthew’s keen on adopting and I would like to foster. We’re open to ideas, so we’ll see.”
Davina and Matthew are already parents to daughters Holly, 8, Tilly, 6, and son Chester, 3.

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.”

She is a special needs baby and because of that it all moved so much faster. They wanted to get her to us as quickly as possible.”

“My sister is Korean and my parents adopted her back in the 70s and so I just always knew that this is something I wanted to do.”
