Pop Queen Madonna has won her battle to adopt 4 year old Malawian Chifundo 'Mercy' James. Judge's in the country's supreme court ruled that the singer could now have custody of the four year after originally turning down her adoption request on the grounds that she had not been a resident in the country for long enough.
The multi-millionaire who has set up a charity which, feeds, educates and provides medical care for the countries orphans is said to be thrilled and preparing to move the child to New York to be with her other children- Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight, and three-year-old David.
I commend Madonna and the other Hollywood stars who want to make life better for some of these unprivileged child. I think the thing they should do now is look at kids in other thirdworld countries in the same situations instead of always going to the same places.
