Her Name Is Mercy

| Filed under: MadonnaBaby BlabberLegal Matters


As we mentioned yesterday, Madonna is heading to Malawi this weekend to adopt another child. This time, a girl.

Officials from Malawi have confirmed that her Madgesty is adopting a 3-year-old girl named Mercy James.

Malawi's Director of Child Welfare Services, Penstone Kilembe, says "The adoption is going ahead. It has been at an advanced stage for some time."

According to officials, Mercy James is from the "Mchinji Home of Hope orphanage. She has no father and mother, they both died…We finished the assessment yesterday in readiness for the courts next week."

What sad circumstances for that little girl, but we can only imagine what a privileged life she'll have with Madge.

AND, with no parents alive, this adoption should be less complicated for the Queen of Pop.

Momma Madonna is due in court this Monday, though none of her reps have yet commented on the situation.

So, what's the reason for the adoption? Madge recently told Malawi's The Nation newspaper that "Many people - especially our Malawian friends - say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister. It's something I have been considering but would only do if I had the support of the Malawian people and the government."

Looks like she's going to get what she wants!

    good on her! whatever she does gets slammed by the media anyway,
    she is thinking of her little boy!, its true being the only child of a diffrent race in a family is gonna make it difficult in school and later yrs. i know this is wrong but its how the world works!
    luv ya madge

    she always gets what she wants , at first i thought the second adoption is a bit over the top , but after hearing what she says it makes a lot of sense

  3. 3

    I mean really what orphan doesn't have a sad story..what was there not enough media coverage on the tour Madonna?

  4. 4

    I don t like Madonna, I find her ridiculous meantime, BUT: Tens of thousands of babies are STARVING each(!) day in this region, so it s probably a good idea to adopt them …BEST, however, would be if she donated so much money as to enable those children to STAY in their country and LIVE there among people like themselves…

    What is wrong with American children?

    Even though she's a fucking piece of shit, having a home is better than not and hell this kid will have tons of fucking money.

  7. 7

    so sick of madonna. she's so annoying.

  8. 8

    Just do it already and stop the publicity Malario!

  9. 9

    THe name Mercy is so terrible! When you talk about how this kid will have such a great life - you mean that being raised by a string of nannies as your grandmother-aged mother is too busy whoring herself out to be a stay at home mom.

    Again - money does not equate love!!!!

    Re: cdv

    I know - I think that we should support the Global South - but first we need to look after all of the people in this Nation that are starving, living on the streets, and lost in the foster home system.

    But you have to give Madonna credit - adopting poor little african babies is much more trendy than adopting some poor white trash AMerican kid!

  11. 11

    Guaranteed she made sure this kids parents were dead before agreeing to adopt.

  12. 12

    I dont get it. Isnt it ILLEGAL to adopt a kid from Malawi??

    What was all the contreversy about when se adopted David??? It was cuz its illegal for foreigners to adopt a kid from Malawi. Wasnt it? Can someone fill me up with information.

  13. 13

    Are people that are recently divorced encouraged to adopt children? Would that fly had she tried to adopt in america?

  14. 14

    I don't get why she is always carrying that kid… Can't he walk?.. he's big already…

  15. 15

    How nice for Madonna, she cal tell the press that she is adopting a little girl so her other child can have a toy, and then she gets to pay nannies to raise the kids while she goes off to the lab to get the latest crackpot cures for aging injected into her ass.

  16. are13 says – reply to this


    honestly, she could become the next OctoMan and it wouldn't matter, she doesn't care for her kids, NANNIEs do…so don't go giving her Mother of the Year awards anytime soon!

  17. 17

    she doesn't spend enough time with the kids she has. she's always working out and stuff. i hear she sets like an hour a day aside to spend quality time with them. it's good that she's doing it, but she needs to commit to raising them. they aren't accessories. when lourdes is around her, you can see she's starving for her mother's attention. but, she is saving their lives. pick another name.

  18. 18

    and she will go so well with that new Loui Vutton purse! sick bitch, scary collector of human beings, ripping innocents children lifes apart, she's the worse! if she was interested in really helping orphans in Malawi she would do what Oprah do and build an orphanage WITH HER MONEY!!! not start one and expect other people to pay for it like she did, so she gets the publicity but doesn't get to dole out the cash!

  19. 19

    Normally, I'd support any celebrity adoption, but everything this woman does just seems so insincere.

  20. 20

    Re: simone1 – How do you know? You don't know Madonna. She is not touring ALL the time and not making music all the time. Of course she has time to watch her kids. So what if she works out 3 hours a day? Most moms work eight hours a day so get over it loser. She is the QUEEN.

  21. 21

    It doesnt matter who the person is or how much money they have, no person in the entire world should be able to adopt a baby they are going to drop straight into the arms of a nanny while they piss off on a world tour. Especially not a newly divorced person with a history thats an example of pretty much everything thats wrong.

  22. 22

  29. 29

    Childeater. Monster. If you adopt them, then raise them, not hire a bunch of nannies to take care of them! And she's going on tour again soon so…yeah. Fuck, decide already if you're going to be a mediawhore forever or finish it all and start acting like a grown-up mother.

    It will be nice for David, and no matter what the haters say, little Mercy will have a lot better life with Madonna than as a face in the crowd, with no future, in an orphanage in Malawi.

    I like how she didn't change David Banda's name to something else to suit her. It must be weird to be adopted at three years old and then told ok we are not going to call you by your name,from now on your name is…
    bless her, the kid is going to have a nice home now:)

    Joan Rivers is adopting a baby from Malawi?

  40. 40

    Awww another cute little Madonna bb!

  41. 41

    Wish she and all her little misfits would die already.

  42. 42

    Didn't she try to buy this kid once before?

  43. 43

    Re: shrobi1 – Fucking right! I'll bet that old whore has never once changed a diaper, potty trained a kid, cleaned up "accidents", gotten up in the middle of the night if the kids were sick….she pays people for that.
    Yeah, the kid will have more money growing up, and she'll be cleaner, more educated…but the amount of love she receives from Vadge will be the same amount she'd receive if she stayed in the orphanage.

  44. 44

    Wow, that should get her a few more column inches :-s Apparently last time she bypassed the most deserate orphanages like 'Open Arms' which she didn't wish to adopt from before on her last adoption drive, to go to the more exclusive ones in the more affluent areas (i use the word affulent loosely) How do i know this? My father was there in Malawi at the same time visiting family and offering help and support to the Open Arms orphanage!!

  45. 45

    Re: Snuggies keep me snug and happy – shut up ignorant.she is an amazing mother.she pics her kids to schools everyday.she put them to sleep everynight and tells them stories,u dont know nothing about madonna.she is a completely diferent people when it comes to be a mother.and she is an amazinhg mother.she will be a mother of 4.when she was young her mother died at 6,and left behind 8 sons.and madonna is the oldest and she took care of them all.

  46. 46

    Re: Junkie – u should die.racist asshole.

  47. 47

    Another kid for her to turn over to a nanny while she kats around with a stable of barely legal studs with huge pingas. Each kid has a different nanny that she'll drag out for a photo op once in a while to pretend she's a good mother. Having a shit load of money doesn't make you a good mother honey. It just means you can buy whatever you want to inflat your ego.

    Where's PETA???? Big leather coat and UGG boots………..

  49. 49

  50. 50

    Re: JoJoStar – she is not like shitney.she is a good mother.she cares about her kids.and she has no nanny now.her oldest kids dont have nannies

  51. 51

    Re: geolis – ugg boots??its not from an animal asshole.and listen.u eat animals right????

  52. 52

    Children in Malawi would be happy to get pure water and some toys. Madonna's children will need to have the best clothes, cars, bodyguards etc. etc…
    If she want to do good she could just donate some money or start a school like Oprah, not bring them to her house where she doesn't have time for them because she has a new album or tour or toyboy to play with

  53. 53

    im sure its good for the lil children, but why all black? is this the new fashion accessory? cus if it is i want it? lol. anyway this lady prolly just wants a lil sister for the boyfriend she adopted, what kind of an example is she trying to set?? shes a pedophile gosh damn it disgusting!! must be all dried up inside that she cant have her own.

  54. 54

    the baby is 14 months. not 3 years. get your facts right.

  55. 55

    i think what shes doing is great and anyone who dosent should just get over it already…leave her alone!! LOVE YA M, HOPE EVERYTHING WORKS OUT AS PLANNED :)

  56. 56

    Is the other one getting to big to be carried around like a pet? Or is an African baby girl more trendy because Angelina Jolie has one too… Vadge needs to leave buying kids to Michael Jackson.

  57. 57

    Re: piggywoo – Buying kids? You're an idiot and you need to stop saying ignorant and immature things. Taken on a kid for 18 years isnt a publicity stunt.

  58. 58

    wtf. WHY WHY in god's name will they let some silly woman who doesn't spend time with her children as it is because she's too busy touring and being a famewhore adopt a very fragile, mentally and probably physically child.

    They won't let overweight, gays adopt (at least not easily)

    what is wrong with these people. she gets whatever she wants. money talks.

  59. 59

    Re: Kimmers – i meant overweight people, and also gays/lesbians/transgendered people (not overweight gays!!) just for clarification , lol.

  60. 60

    So a freshly divorced single mother. with 2 kids, both from different fathers..(not counting David), is able to give this child the best oppertunities in life???

    And no i am not talking about all the money and what it might buy.
    I am talking about a stable emotionally stable family.

    Any woman with Madonna's recent experiences, divorce. toyboy Jesus etc etc, would have never been able to adopt a child.

    And in this country we have a law that the age difference between the adopted child and the youngest parent can not be more than something around 43 years…

    Skeleton Madge makes me sick!
    Fucked up bitch!

  61. 61

    Is this a done deal? There are a lot of reports that say Malawi officials are questioning her "morals and current lifestyle"- her divorce, friendships with Alex Rodriguez and boytoy Jesus and other things from her past. I have nothing against IT! adopting these children but Mario, you gotta report the entire story.

  62. 62

    well, this was the little girl she was suppose to adopt after David. I'm glad she is adopting Mercy than some other kid because I think she met mercy and told her she was taking her home last time! at least Madonna kept her promise for little mercy!

  63. 63

    Re: Snuggies keep me snug and happy

    yes, your right! @ least she didn't go against her word and adopt a different child. I think she told little Mercy she was adopting her. She wanted to adopt Mercy right after david but had trouble because of david's controversial adoption! I'm happy that she is going to keep her promise to Mercy! ♥

  64. 64

    Madonna should cover and dedicate a song to the Malawian government- "You got me beggin' you for Mercy!"

  65. 65

    Re: She_has_Attitude – Do you live with Madonna, are you allocated to one of the kids, did Madonna pay you extra to post on here in here defense, how sweet lmao. Its all speculation and heresay. No one knows what goes on behind her closed doors, we only know what she chooses to be thrust into the direction of the media. Thats what she pays a publicist for- to keep the old cocksucker glowing.

  66. 66

    Perez, what part of this equation don't you get - Tons of money alone will NOT make for a happy life! MADonna is NEVER around those children. They are raised by nannies. Do you honestly think that a child who has ALREADY been deprived of love and human contact will THRIVE under more of the same, simply because MADonna throws expensive clothes on her?
