"David [Furnish] and I have always talked about adoption, David always wanted to adopt a child and I always said 'no' because I am 62 and I think because of the travelling I do and the life I have, maybe it wouldn't be fair for the child.

"But having seen Lev today, I would love to adopt him. 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 John, on the 14-month-old boy from the Ukraine whom he met during an AIDS charity foundation performance at an orphanage
