Why don't celebrities, such as Madonna, adopt children from the U.S. ?

    Because they are attention whores. I do like the way Madonna's eyes are getting further apart as she ages.

    She couldn't wear them as a fashion accessory, like Paris Hilton and her tiny dogs.

    Without even leaving GT a simple search will show an overwhelming belief that even the poorest people in America have it better than alot of folks in other parts of the world. I mean, unless we're lying it would seem children in other parts of the world need help even more.

    Its not the in thing to do. Thousands of ppl adopt native kids, but how many adopt feom foriegn countries?

    Thats the answer, they think what they are doing is better than what you or me can do with our moderate finacial abilities.
    This elevates them and inflates their ego even more as well as giving them camera and media time.

    I'm less concerned about the geographic location of the children and more concerned with the fact that madonna is as old as my mom. She's nearly 60. I understand it isn't the same as a normal 60 year old adopting them but she's 60 and single. If these are newborns they will be raised by someone who will be within spitting distance of 80 when they reach adulthood?

    I don't WANT her to adopt American kids. Just think of how screwed up those kids are going to turn out to be with that disgusting POS for a "Mother", no father, no stable home life, but lots of money for drugs and mental health care when they get older.

    I just wish the old skank would take all her little "fashion accessory children" and move to their country of origin.

    Because adoption laws in the USA suck thanks to Social workers and PhDs who think they know what's best for your child.

    Google "open adoptions"
    and
    "open adoptions" "gone wrong"

    We don't need the kids mom coming back 5 years later saying that she wants some "Quality time with HER child", or that she wants to provide input on how "HER child should be raised".

    So we went to China for both of our adoptions. . .

    Because America doesn't have orphanages, it has waiting lists instead;
    and millions of dead aborted babies.

    Go window shopping at your neighborhood orphanage if you doubt this.

    Aww man, I can't remember where I heard it. Must've been a comedian. Maybe old Opie & Anthony.
    Talking about how there aren't commercials. Where are the orphanages? Why don't they advertise? Can people visit the children, meet them?
    The bit was structured in such a way as to make you envision the old tv version of orphanages from Annie or Oliver Twist and asked if anyone knew where their nearest local orphanage was.

    Oh yeah, they were also asking why is it only missing kids on milk cartons. Too many kids in the world already. Stop trying to find em. Put kids that need adopting on the milk cartons instead. Remind people that there are already pre-made kids that need homes. Publicize.

    Young children don't hate. The learn that as they grow older from their parents and relatives.

    Madonna? Really? Why ask why?

    In the grand scheme Madonna is but a small blip. She has enough money to make those kids' lives much better without making any real impact on the rest of the world. I'd rather that money go to raising those kids than toward some lib-o-crat's election fund.

    Will the kids turn out messed up? You never know. Sometimes the most unlikely parents raise pretty good kids - sometimes it turns out the other way. I certainly don't want the responsibility of deciding who should adopt whom and how they should raise them.
