Madonna's '£12m Mercy' For Adoption

By Staff

There is no excuse for Madonna from winning her bid to adopt a second child from Malawi. However critics have come up with the new story that the superstar won only because she pumped a whopping 12 million pounds to the poverty-stricken country.


Malawi's supreme court of Appeal overturned a previous ruling that stopped Madonna taking four year old Mercy James, to America. She then got the permission to adopt the African girl. It is also true that Madonna has given the African state to fund orphan aid projects.

The Material Girl has reportedly spent 12million pounds funding six orphanages as well as paying for shoes, clothes, books and mosquito nets. Madonna jumped with joy after she came to know that she had won her battle to adopt orphan Mercy. Alan Chinula, Madonna's lawyer in Malawi, is now waiting for instructions to start preparing for Mercy's travel arrangements.

A private jet is said to be on standby to fly Mercy to New York as soon as her papers are ready. She will then be reunited with Madonna. She will be joining the family of her new sister Lourdes, 12, and brothers Rocco, eight, and David, three.
