(Radio.com) This week, it was revealed that Madonna successfully applied to adopt twin girls from Malawi, the African nation in which she's spearheaded aid efforts for years -- a source of both praise and controversy.

Legal precedent for international adoption existed in Malawi thanks to Madonna's two previous adoptions. Nevertheless, the judge sought to determine Madonna's sincerity and weighed the consequences of sending children to live abroad.

"In determining her motives, I questioned the petitioner at length about the impact of her decision which could be construed as robbing Malawi of its most precious resource, its children," wrote Mwale. Read more here.
