Madonna's Mercy adoption back on track
Tuesday 09 June 2009
Madonna will reportedly be granted permission to adopt a Malawian orphan by three appeal judges.
The 50-year-old star's attempt to adopt Mercy James had been blocked, but according to the Sun, two of the judges have already signed paperwork recommending the adoption, and a third will do the same.
Malawi's Supreme Court of Appeal will apparently announce the ruling next Sunday, and a source told the newspaper: "The paperwork is being typed up now."
The source added: "All recommendations are in favour of the adoption taking place, Mercy should start packing her bags - she's off to America."
A close friend of the Vogue singer said: "She's ecstatic - she made a promise that she wouldn't give up on Mercy and, believe me, she could move mountains when she's this determined.
Madge's adoption hopes had been dashed because the singer had not lived in the country for the 18 months required, but the friend said: "No stone has been left unturned to prove that ruling was wrong."
