British singer Sinitta is looking to add to her brood. The mom of two is hoping to adopt a third child from the same birth mother as her two adopted children.
Sinitta, who is mother to five-year-old daughter Magdalena and three-year-old son Zac, found out earlier this year that the biological mother of her children was pregnant again.
Sinitta tells Hello magazine, “Bizarrely, for over a year my mother had been telling me that she kept picturing me cradling a baby, but I brushed it aside. Then I started having dreams about it, too. When I was told about this baby, it all made sense.”
“Even though I am a lone parent, I’m not alone,” she adds. “I have a terrific network of friends and my mother has said that she will help and support me every step of the way.”
And Sinitta will need all the support that she can get as the adoption process is tedious in the UK, and especially for those interested in adopting mixed-raced kids.
“There are literally hundreds of mixed race babies in children’s homes but it’s difficult to find parents for them because you have to be a mixed-race couple yourselves to adopt them and there just aren’t enough of such couples around wanting to adopt. Your heart would break to see how many mixed-race children there are left in these homes,” she said in 2006.
