Susan Boyle has revealed that she has begun the process of adopting a child.
The singer, who reached massive heights of success following her appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, spoke to The Mirror about her baby plans, saying: “I have so much love to give, I have so much to give someone that I want to adopt. I want to adopt a child who doesn’t have much, someone who I can really give something to. It’s a way of giving back for me.”
The talented singer also said that the process is already in motion: “I know it is all a long process but I’ve never been more keen to do it. The rules can be quite strict but let’s hope ... We'll have to see what social services say but it would make me so happy. I do know that I'm 50-odd and single, people don't think I’m being serious when I say it, they have a giggle at me. Let’s see.”
Susan also spoke about wanting to change the “label” associated with Asperger’s Syndrome, which she was diagnosed with: “It’s bloody difficult sometime. When you’re in the public eye, or even if you’re not, if you’re different, you’re given a label. I want to peel those labels off.”
