Elton John to support boy he couldn’t adopt

Elton John with LevElton John has decided to support the Ukranian boy he was not allowed to adopt. John, 62, met the 14-month-old boy, Lev, at a home for HIV-positive children in September. He requested to adopt the child, who has a mother, but was refused permission due to strict Ukranian laws. John’s partner David Furnish told BBC radio that he and John were working to ensure Lev and his brother “have the best health care, education and family options available to them.” ~Alexandra Heilbron
