Ai-Ai De Las Alas has no plans of adopting a child


Last year Ai-Ai De Las Alas mourned the death of a baby she was supposed to adopt. Ai-Ai named the baby Sierra Destiny who was the baby of a friend who at that time was not yet ready for motherly duties. In a recent interview during her pictorial for Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 however, Ai-Ai said that she doesn'rsquo;t feel like adopting a child at this time. "Mukhang hindi muna kasi nga sa dami ng sinusuportahan kong charities baka hindi ko na kayang mag-ampon pa. Ang dami pa namang bata sa National Children'rsquo;s Hospital at sa iba pa na nangangailangan ng tulong. Hindi lang tulong ko, tulong din nating lahat. Siguro ang focus ko muna 'lsquo;yung maraming bata, hindi lang isa."

But the comedienne is not completely closing her doors on adopting. Ai-Ai believes that fate will have its way if an abandoned child is really meant to be hers. "Kung ipagkakaloob ng Diyos, tatanggapin ko. Hindi lang 'lsquo;yung basta sasabihin sa akin, 'lsquo;Ms. Ai sa iyo na po itong bata.'rsquo; Siguro kung may mag-iwan sa tapat ng bahay namin o sa ospital. Tapos nakasulat, 'lsquo;For Ai-Ai'rsquo; ha ha ha!," she joked.

Ai-Ai would often take her three children with her whenever she would do charity work for less fortunate kids. She explained that this is her way of teaching her children about the value of being thankful for the comfortable lives they have right now. "Gusto ko kasi habang bata pa sila malaman na nila kung gaano sila kaswerte sa buhay. Marami silang meron na 'lsquo;yung maraming bata e wala. Nakakain sila sa tamang oras. Kumpleto ang mga kamay at paa nila. Wala na silang mahihiling pa."

Despite having difficulty dividing her time between work and motherly duties, Ai-Ai is very thankful that she was able to raise her children to become disciplined. "Napaka happy ko na naging mabubuting bata ang mga anak ko. Kahit sa dami ng pangit na pinagdaanan ko, lahat nabura na 'lsquo;yun. Kapag wala na ako at napunta na ako sa heaven, gusto ko sila naman ang magtuloy sa mga charities ko. At talagang sinabi kong siguradong sa heaven ako mapupunta, ha ha ha!"
