Stick with your first instinct

Elton John would like to adopt a Ukranian kid he met on an orphanage tour.  And before you ask, he’s 62.  His partner is only 46, though.  John mentions that although his partner has long wanted to adopt, he thought it wouldn’t be fair to the child because of his age and the amount of time he travels.

But now maybe he’s changed his mind.  Because the kid is just so darn cute.

John said he was motivated in part by the sudden death last week of one of his closest friends, keyboardist Guy Babylon.

“It broke my heart because he was such a genius and so young and has two wonderful children,” John said. “What better opportunity to replace someone I lost than to replace him with someone I can give a future to.”

  1. i just read that Elton John was denied because of his age, and also because he is gay.
    actually, i have met some gay/lesbian couples who are really great parents, the age would probaby be a concern, although many parents don’t think that way, but I do now, I think how hard it must be if parents are really old and either die when the adoptee is still young, or, are unable to really help the adult adoptee with child care or all kinds of other support that they deserve.

  2. What about Kathryn Heigl who just adopted from Korea and says she was not on the fast track bc she was a celeb? She was married Dec 2007. You have to be married 3 years to adopt from Korea, even a special needs child. :/
