It's a done deal.
We're happy to report that Madonna's adoption of David Banda is finally official. A Malawi judge has approved the paperwork and the Material Girl and Guy Ritchie can now call the boy their own, for keeps. It's about time, since Madge and Guy have been taking care of David since October of 2006, and after all the ups and downs they have dealt with.
"We are very happy with what the judge has ruled," Madonna's lawyer, Alan Chinula, said outside the courthouse (neither Madge nor Guy were present). "Finally the court has granted Madonna full adoption rights of the boy...It's all over, thank God.
"It is a positive and beautiful judgment that will have an impact on Malawi's adoption laws."
Let us all say "Mazel Tov!"
