Everybody else is sending money. Trina wants to adopt. Miami rapper Trina wants to lend a greater helping hand by adopting an oprhan child from the troubled country of Haiti, who was impacted by a massive 7.0 earthquake about 2 weeks ago and suffered nearly 50 after shocks in the days following. She put out a statement over the weekend:

“With the current state that Haiti is in right now, I personally feel like donating monetary and physical possessions is an enormous and vast donation; however, I would like to contribute on a higher level for more personal reasons like being ready to raise/nurture a child and by being involved on a day to day basis,” Trina states.

Hundreds to thousands of children have lost their family and parents in this natural diaster. There is no alternative for them due to flooding, hurricanes, and now this massive earthquake. Sadly, a series of a 6.1 tremor caused more diaster and killed and injured many people.

“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. I want to share that with a child who is a victim in this disturbing time, in addition to adding on to my immediate family circle.

“I am in the financial position to adopt, therefore, I am taking it into deep consideration at this time. 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 release of her new album entitled Amazin is due out later this year. Trina is at the point in her career where she feels she can take on the responsibilities of motherhood and her infamous rap career. And she has a little Haitian in her too, which she says, makes this decision a logical choice.

“Lastly, the fact that I am considering adopting a child from Haiti is even more significant to me because a great deal of adopted children come into the United States from larger countries–like China, Russia and African countries. I also have family members that are of Haitian descent.”

So Trina is really trying to adopt a Haitian orphan? This should be pretty interesting. But good luck to her anyway!
