Among other reasons, Madonna adopted David Banda because he was motherless. When his mother died, Yohane Banda could not raise David alone, and among other things he needed a mother to be there for his son. He admittedly said that he did not know what adoption really meant before he met the Queen of Pop. This was honest because before Madonna, Malawi has never allowed any adoptions. When the toddler was under Madonna's 'motherly' care, he was under the watchful 'fatherly' eye of Guy Ritchie. When Madonna and the filmmaker Guy Ritchie divorced, David Banda lived in a single-parent household with a 'mother' who brought in different men in a quest to replace Ritchie. A-Rod, Jesus were used by Madonna to fulfill her needs when she needed them, and when their purpose was accomplished; they were dealt away with. All this happened under the eyes of David Banda, the boy who was motherless then became fatherless.
