After hitting some snags (including a human-rights investigation last fall for supposedly bending Malawi adoption laws), Madonna's adoption of 22-month-old David Banda is moving forward. Malawi social worker Penstone Kilembe has received permission to visit Madonna's family to make an assessment whether Madonna should be allowed to adopt David. She is "looking forward to this so her adoption process is not hampered," said Penstone. Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie were given temporary custody of David and Penstone's testimony will decide whether the couple gets final approval to adopt him.
