Comments on Veronika Sophia Robinson: Madonna's adoption ~ parenting from the heart

I totally agree with your views on Madonna's adopt...

I totally agree with your views on Madonna's adoption - with so many dreadful things happening, how can the media possibly justify villifying someone for doing something as inherently selfless and caring as adoption?

A quick note though, you mention the steep cost of adoption fees, actually (unless you are adopting from overseas) in the UK it's just £30 at a magistrates court or £130 at a normal court. Adoption agencies will often help new adoptive parents by providing potentially expensive items such as prams, and for families with limited income may even provide an adoption allowance (particularly when adopting more than one sibling or a child who needs medical care).

My husband and I are planning to adopt as well as having 'birth' children, and the adoption agency we've discussed this with were extremely kind and helpful. They provide lots of support and training to adoptive families, encouraging families to form a support network with each other.

Unfortunately, there are a some illogical and outdated restrictions on who can adopt as you say, and the process is definitely flawed, but it's certainly not expensive.
