Sir Elton John Opens Up About Journey With David Furnish To Become Parents

On Christmas Day Sir Elton John and David Furnish became first-time parents, welcoming son Zachary, after wanting to start a family for quite some time.  He shares his joy:

For many years we have talked about fulfilling one of our greatest wishes by becoming parents. And now this wish has been granted to us, we feel so blessed and lucky.”

Becoming parents is bittersweet for the couple.  They were attempting to adopt a 14-month-old boy they fell in love with in the Ukraine, but were denied.  Elton and David haven’t given up on the child, though – they are working to find him and his HIV-positive brother a home.  David shared:

“Although Ukranian law does not permit Elton and I to adopt Lev and Artyom, we are determined to give them the best chance of living a happy and healthy life with a loving Ukranian family. The arrival of our son has done nothing but strengthen our resolve to help these two wonderful children. We are, however, constrained by Ukranian policy and legal procedure, and this is why for the past 12 months we have retained a leading Ukranian law firm to assist us in this process.”

Wow, that’s truly wonderful of them to continue to work to find these boys a loving home!  I hope they’re successful.
