Melbourne (ANI): Queen of pop Madonna"s second adoption from Africa has infuriated Australian mums, who say that it would have taken them six years to do the same. Aussie moms, who have adopted children from Africa, were frustrated that Madge was able to adopt new daughter, Mercy, 4, in Malawi on April 1, just two years after she adopted David Banda.
For Carmel and Jeff Stormer of Newcastle, it had taken them more than four years to adopt brothers Kidane and Yohi, now 10 and 12, from Ethiopia, and had to pay 20,000 dollars. “It"s frustrating. It's almost like she can buy children," the Daily Telegraph quoted Carmel Stormer as saying.
