A Malawian man who gave up his 13-month-old son to be adopted by Madonna said Sunday he had not realized he was signing away custody “for good.” Yohane Banda, 32, signed adoption papers earlier this month, clearing the way for a Malawian judge to grant the pop singer and her husband a temporary order to take his son David. Banda said his understanding was that “when David grows up, he will return back home to his village.” He said the director of Child Welfare Services, Penston Kilembe, and the retired pastor who heads the orphanage where David spent most of his life never told him by “adoption” it meant David will cease to be his son. Banda said he was illiterate and so had no idea of the significance of the adoption.
