Mercy Comes to Madonna

Malawi officials have confirmed that Madonna is adopting 3-year-old Mercy James.

“The adoption is going ahead. It has been at an advanced stage for some time,” said Malawi’s Director of Child Welfare Services, Penstone Kilembe to UsWeekly.

Mercy is from the “Mchinji Home of Hope orphanage. She has no father and mother, they both died…We finished the assessment yesterday in readiness for the courts next week,” said an official at the ministry of Gender and Child Development to Reuters.

Gerard, shouldn’t you be working? Are you a hater of America?

what kind of role model is she!

Too bad there are no needy kids in her own COUNTRY!!! LOSER

Can’t believe they let his tramp adopt again!!

Well, she saw how much attention Angelina Jolie gets and Madonna craves all the attention she can get. Makes sense she would buy and baby and will then pay someone else to raise it.

Good for Madge! The bb needs some love.

madonna is an old ho bag @ 03/27/2009 at 1:16 pm

This poor little girl will only be raised by nannies because her adoptive mother will be to busy whoring around with with 20 yrs old

Gerard Vandenberg!!!!!!
For God’s sake, stop it with the “folks” business.
Don’t you know any other words in English? If not, write German!! At least we won’t be able to understand it!

they need protection and a mother.and madonna is an amaizng mother,god bless her.she doesnt adopt in her country cause african people needs more help.and her other kid is from malawi too,and she gaves lots of money to them.she is a citizen of malawi too


at the very least, i am grateful these celebrities are raising awareness about the blessings of adopting children, especially older children and toddlers instead of newborns, and hope it inspires other people to consider it a viable option.

Hey Me!#16 is Gerard getting on your nerves too. What does he even mean by “director.”

even with all the baggageMadge carries, it is great that she is willing to adopt a child from a very very poor country, and also that she’s not a small baby. She will have a better life than the one she has right now, that is for sure.

She-whom-shall-not-be-named @ 03/27/2009 at 2:16 pm

What good has she done taking one more child, while she discriminates on hundred others left in the home or the thousands all over the entire Malwai for that matter?
If the celebrities were not buying on what’s ‘in’, i would believe they would finance a larger scale project rather than take one baby as an accessory to be photographed with when they return to the US. What happened to’questioning her moral values’ crap”? Africa wil forever live in the legacy of colonization, and they would accept anything the white man is willing to pay. Shame on you madonna.

Great. Another publicity stunt.

wasn’t madonna already funding some kind of project in Malawi? besides, I do not think that everybody who has adopted overseas is funding charities, if it is so, then you should do research call them on for adopting babies from poor coutries, how dare they!!!!

What about the people who are not famous and adopting from other countries?

Meg Ryan
Mia Farrow

blake edwards
julie andrews
ewan mcgregor
meg ryan
mia farrow
yul brinner
have adopted overseas

many of those achildren are of different races as their parents, and also there are the critics of those who adopt interracially, even if they are from their own country. I do not think they are adopting a kid to please anybody after all. This is a tabloid world, years ago people adopted too, but there was not much interest and criticism as it is today to know about the famous’ lives.
