Today’s heartwarming news comes courtesy of Sinitta, who has revealed that she is set to welcome another baby into her family through foster care.
The star adopted her two children, Magdalena and Zac, back in 2007 following a series of tragic miscarriages, and she is now in the process of welcoming a third child who is in desperate need of a stable home.
Speaking to The Sun, Sinitta admitted that it wasn’t an easy decision to make, explaining: “I am actually in the process of fostering a baby. I’ve been struggling with the idea of fostering, thinking if I foster a child would I be able to give the child back to its mother or up for adoption when the time came?
“[But] rather than thinking about how difficult it would be for me to give the child up, what about being that person who gave that child three months, six months, of love and care and a great start in life, before they’re with their forever family?”
A brilliant sentiment that we couldn’t agree more with.
The singer went on to add: “Obviously I’m an older mum now, and somebody said something the other day. They were talking about a homeless person they’d helped on the street who was on the brink of death and basically they were able to help them for the last three weeks of their life and get them medical care and assistance and attention and love basically.
“It was a homeless child, and they said, ‘Look, this is the most love I’ve experienced in my life, the care you’ve given me these last three weeks.’
“Then, hearing this story, I realised you know what? What about just being an answer to a need?”
We couldn’t be more excited for Sinitta and her future foster children, and with 70,000 children needing foster homes in the UK alone, she is definitely going to make a huge difference.
