Madonna Confirms Adoption Of 'Mercy'

Earlier this week, Madonna arrived in Malawi with her kids — David, 3, Lourdes, 12, and Rocco, 8.

In a statement from her rep Liz Rosenberg, Madonna confirmed she is trying to adopt a girl named Chifundo “Mercy” James who is about 4 years old.

According to AP, the girl’s 18-year-old mother was unmarried and died soon after she gave birth. Her father is believed to be alive but has little contact with his daughter.

The Material mom also took David (pictured here) to meet his biological father for the first time since he left Malawi in 2006. “Madonna is committed to maintaining an ongoing relationship with David‘s Malawian roots,” Madge‘s statement continued.
