The singer and his partner David Furnish visited a Ukrainian orphanage September 12, and one little boy named Levi may be soon becoming part of their family, “David has always wanted to adopt a child and I always said ‘no’ because I am 62 and I think because of the traveling I do and the life I have maybe it wouldn’t be fair for the child,” Elton told reporters accompanying him on his mission for his Elton John AIDS Foundation.

“But I have seen Levi today.  I would love to adopt him.  I don’t know how we do that but he has stolen my heart.  And he has stolen David’s heart and it would be wonderful if we can have a home.  I’ve changed my mind today.”

Elton’s appearance at the orphanage, where he performed for the kids, came on the same day that Jolie visited the world’s worst refugee camp in Kenya where she tried to comfort starving children and their mothers.
