After a process that has spanned over two years…
A Malawai court on Wednesday finally approved Madonna's adoption of little David.
She's his mommy - for good!
A lawyer for her Madgesty has released a statement, saying, "We are very happy with what the judge has ruled. It is a positive and beautiful judgment that will have an impact on Malawi's adoption laws."
The adoption has been very controversial, with critics accusing the government of skirting laws that ban non-residents from adopting children in Malawi, which has been badly hit by an AIDS epidemic that has left more than 1 million orphans.
Many people and groups opposed the adoption, but in the end, even David's biological father wanted Madonna to be able to legally care for the child.
Congrats to mother and son!
