“I would like to contribute on a higher level for more personal reasons in addition to being ready to raise/nurture a child; by being involved on a day-to-day basis,” Trina told the Web site.
“The tragic and untimely list of events that have happened in Haiti, even before the recent earthquake, have made me realize how blessed I am as an individual and I want to share that with a child that is a victim in this disturbing time,” Trina stated.
The Miami native, whose new album “Amazin'” is due this year, believes that at age 32 she is ready to take on both the responsibilities of motherhood and the demands of her career as a rap artist.
“I am in the financial position to adopt; therefore I am taking it into deep consideration at this time,” Trina revealed. “I have always admired other individuals for adopting children, not so much for their celebrity status, but more so because of the nurturing and invaluable change and joy it will bring to a child’s life.”
The rapper stated that she also has family members from Haiti, which would make the adoption of a child a logical choice.
“The fact that I am considering adopting a child from Haiti is even more significant to me seeing that a great deal of adopted children that come into the United States are from ‘larger countries’ such as China, Russia and Africa,” Trina said.
