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.”
