It's Official! Madonna Wins Appeal For Adoption!

| Filed under: MadonnaBaby Blabber


It's true! A new addition is making its way to join Madonna's herd of youngsters.

It was announced this morning that Madonna won her adoption appeal in Malawi and can now begin preparations to bring home 3 year-old Mercy James. Madge's attorney told the press that his client had been "awake all night long" waiting to hear the verdict and when the moment finally arrived, Madge was "ecstatic."

It will take anywhere from 3-5 days to go through the necessary paperwork and schedule the private jet, but now that it is a done deal, all Madge has to do is sit back and wait for them to bring home her new little one.

Congrats to the lucky mom and the lucky, lucky kid!

UPDATE: Madonna has just released a statement via her rep. Her Madgesty says, "I am extremely grateful for the Supreme Court's ruling on my application to adopt Mercy James. I am ecstatic … My family and I look forward to sharing our lives with her."

    money talks.
    she can't even put herself on a plane to pick up "her" child.

  7. 7

    No comments on the unlucky grandmother and other relatives whose poverty prevents them from raising Mercy, though they'd like to?

    Just sayin'.

    "awake all night long" …. counting the money going into the briefcase to be delivered to Malawi.

    She needs to go ahead and surrender the no pants crown to Lady GaGa. Madonna looks incredibly ridiculous running around in her underwear seeing how she's over the hill and has children. Everybody knows you have nice legs Madonna; trust me, EVERYONE knows!

    as a Malawian (and I know am speaking for the majority of Malawians, starting with our president) this is no brainer, we are all happy that this adoption has gone through. The girl is better off with Madonna, most of you yapping here don’t know what poverty is. Do you? have you ever gone on an empty stomach?

    Madonna has done quite a lot for our country within a short space of time through her Raising Malawi Org, which is providing for a lot of orphans and that is hugely appreciated by ‘WE’ Malawians.

    Who is this washed-up old has-been? Nobody cares if she bought a new African slave.

  16. 16

    The Hung Up singer was praised by the African country's high court for her efforts to improve the lives of local children .

    Congratulations to Madonna I am so pleased for you and especially for Mercy who will be out of the orphanage and get a brilliant education and opportunities she wouldnt have had. As an adopted person myself I know how important this adoption is and how much better Mercy's life will be.

    That kid is not lucky. She'll be dsyfunctional within years. Can you imagine being raised by someone who spend 8 hours a day working on themselves? Talk about shallow values.

    She delivered the North Korean nuke to Iran so Iran bought the kid and now madonner gets the kid!I love happy endings!

  25. 25

    wow, wouldn't it be great if everyone could buy babies in africa?

  26. 26

    I dont get it. Why are people so hateful when all this woman is doing is giving this child a chance to live!!! This has nothing to do with Madonna, It's about saving this childs life.

  27. 27

    Re: tasty dish – not money talks.people should pay more atnetion.she was judge in the first time with an old law.was wrong.a law that says she had to live in africa for 18 months.but that law doesnt exists in 50 years.thast why she was on court for the second time.everybody is on her side.she did so many great things for poor people.of course she deserves it.queen of the universe.cant wait for the new cd,dvd and the new book,by the way she will start shooting her new movie in january

  28. 28

    She could at least go and pick up the child herself if she is going to rip her out of the heart of the only life she has ever known.

  29. GIO says – reply to this


    It's funny that this child has "family" though she is in no way being taking care of. The only one paying for anything is Madonna. The grandmother has a home, yet the child is in an orphanage. How wold we feel if this child was here. No one obviously wants this child but Madonna, and the media and people crucify her. What the hell has this woman done for people to hate her? She isn't on drugs, hasn't been in a looney bin, manages her money and really doesn't say much. I commend her. I think this denial of the girl was a way to ride a publicity train. Deny Madonna's adoption, get publicity. No one knew where or what Malawi was but now we do. This in itself is a good thing. Good for Madonna & good for the child. For those of you that comment on her age, that is just stupid. Madonna was doing the leotard, many years ago and for those of you who don't like it…go to your local Capezio and try one on, take a picture and post it and let the wolves comment. :)

  32. 32

    Madonna Madonna Madonna - Although a part of me is happy for you, I hope this report of "sending" the jet to pick up little Mercy is untrue. You need to fly down there YOURSELF, get her and bring her home - preferably with your three other kids in tow. Otherwsie, it sends a misleading and lasting message that she isn't "really" a solid part of the family. No one could take time to retrieve her inperson. I mean, my kids feel bad when a sitter has to pick them up from pre-school. This is an important occasion in her life - HONOR IT!!!!

    what she is doing is a divine thing.u guys are so selfish.she is not commiting any crime u losers

  39. 39

    Such great news!!!!!!

  40. 40

    Madonna is basiclly riping this child out of the hands of her natural family which is really sad for the little girl . It goes to show you when she wants to win she will do anyything to do it and destroy the people who love the child in the mean time she just wants to walk around acting like she cares for the world and then acts like a slut to the rest of us .

  41. 41

    I feel happy for her :) Mercy will have a wonderful life compared to her current life :) Any child would be lucky to be adobted by the Queen Madonna , I just dont get why it took so long for this to finally happen !

  42. 42

    Re: GIO – see u talk and u dont know.mercy has no mother ,her father never visited her and they all thought he must be death,now he spoke and said he was alive but still not visiting her daughter,her grandmother is dying.this baby is alone since her birth.and she is from the same orphanage as her son david.they are like real brother and sister.and look at david now.he is happy,cute and his bio father is very thankfull to madonna.she saved lifes

    “She’s amazing. I was a little intimidated going in to work with her,” he reveals. “She’s a very clever and witty person. She’ll have a joke or something or one of us will have to tell a joke. She makes it very loose.”

    She’s not all fun and games though, completely the opposite, dishes Enferno.

    “She is so on the go. She would go from our rehearsal to the dancing rehearsal. She’s like a machine. That’s one of the things about her that’s very fascinating. After our rehearsals, she’s got to go across the street and workout physically with the dancers and then I don’t know what she does in her off days,” he admits. “It’s like clockwork. She just goes hard. There’s no slacking.”

    I have to agree with caroaber. I might be excited for either party if this was actually an ORPHAN with no family. God knows there are PLENTY of them to be found thru out the world. Having lost my mom and knowing M has lost her, I would think she would understand the importance of family. Surely the money her highness of delusion throws down on ONE designer outfit she puts on David would be able to financially support an entire family for months. It's a tragedy that any child would have to be taken away from his family because they are simply too poor to afford his care. This is not a case of the family holed up in their apartment smoking crack and not working. GOD BLESS THE FAMILY! And to think she promised that David would learn his native language. Obviously, he is too busy learning french and what is in style this year. Sad, sad, sad. It's a positive thing that she has brought attention to this area of the world, it's just unsettling that she is so self-absorbed

    Something about this adoption and process really rubs me up the wrong way. It's the process more than the actual adoption…the fact that money CAN buy you anything these days. Even a baby. Bruno isn't far wrong in the trailer for his new film.

  48. 48

    Re: allopinionscount!perez! – asshole.listen carefully.she has no family.madonna really cares about mercy.everybody is happy in malawi.that girl has only a grandmother that is dying and nmever visited her.u call that a family loser??i just hope it happens to u.look at her son david ,he knows where is malawi.he is learning malawi language.she doesnt want them to be apart of their culture.NO. STOP CRITICIZING HER AND DO SOMETHING TO HELP HER.MADONNA IS A GREAT MOTHER.SHE IS ALWAYS THERE FOR THEM.EVEN HER EX HUSBAND SAYS.SHE IS AN EXTRAORDINARY MOTHER.SHE NEVER LEAVE THEM BEHING«D LIKE SHITNEY.ACTUALLY WA MADONNA THAT TOLD SHITNEY TO TAKE HER KIDS WITH HER ON TOUR CAUSE THE STUPID SHITNEY WOULD LEAVE THEM WITH THEIR FATHER FOR 3 MONTHS

    Re: kitkat18 – NO DAVID IS 3 AND HE IS LEARNING MALAWI LANGUAGE ACTUALLY.HE HAS A MAP OF MALAWI ON HIS BEDROOM.madonan wants that her kids knows her own culture and she even took her two other kids to malawi and see the proverty in that country.mercy has no family.she is doing a great thing.i cant believe that some people think she should be leave in that orphanage alone.madonna creat an account to her when she thought she couldnt be able to afdopt her.for mercy could have a better future

    Perez..weren't you vilifying Mariah Carey for using a private jet to fly in a personal trainer, but Madonna gets a free pass from you as usual for "sitting back and waiting" for a child to be brought to her via private jet? Wow, the double standards this woman gets are amazing.

    Re: GIO
    "No one knew where or what Malawi was but now we do. This in itself is a good thing."
    Speak for yourself. Not all of us were geography deficient before Madonna came along.

  62. 62

    Well I guess I am glad for the kid………she IS leaving the orphanage, but will be raised by nanny's. But I guess that is better than the place she was, right? Next time maybe Madonna should look in the states and help someone here, many, many kids here have it just as bad here as in Malawi.

  63. 63

    Poor Mercy, …most adoptive parents bond with their child in their homecountry to try and transition them to their new life, and travel with them. I hope she is able to attach and adjust properly, which is hard enough in adoptions of kids of her age but the fact that her mother doesn't even have time for her is going to make it even more risky. It doesn't matter how much money in the world madonna has, attachment disorder condemns a child to a life without love and security which is far more valuable than a hundred of madonna's fortunes.

    Obviously she bribed the courts, madonna pretty much bought her child. This whole thing makes me sick.

  64. 64

    yeah yeah yeah.madonna u deserve.happy for ur family

  65. 65

    Re: ~~jdsgirl~~ – no.nannies??nannies was there for the time that they were kids and madonna had to go to work.and it hapens to other moms,madonna pics her kids in school every day

  66. 66

    Re: GIO – How ignorant, these people live in grinding poverty. Around the devloping world there is no welfare or food stamps, often the only place a child can be fed and clothed is an orphanage.

    Madonna is only thinking of herself. She bought off the courts, can't even be bothered to go pick up her kid, isn't taking any time off to help Mercy attach, is adopting out of birth order, ….. This is a fucking travesty.

  67. 67

    Re: GIO – ahahha agree with u

  68. 68

    how is that kid lucky?! madonna shouldnt have won the appeal she gets anything she wants just cos shes a celebrity.

  69. 69

    Re: celebrate – You haven't a clue about adoption and the complexities of adopting a child of Mercy's age. Attachment is not automatic, most parents spend several weeks in the country with the child to bond and help them adjust to their new life. Madonna isn't taking any time off and is sending someone else to pick her up! All the money in the world isn't going to make that child happy and whole if she ends up with attachment disorder.

  70. 70

    Re: celebrate – how the fuck are we selfish? who the fuck are you to judge anyone? why are all of us losers? did you ever think it's you? waiting for your time honored comeback of fuck you…

  71. 71

    I don't understand why she wouldn't be on that plane to pick her up?!?! wtf!!!

  72. 72

    Re: Wonkette – shut up moron.she was licving alone.i just hope that hapen to ur kid.madonan is giving this little girl a home.and madonna really loves her kids.look how happy is david,her adopt son.she is always with them.she is not like guy.madonna fight for her kids.provides them the best education.she is very close to them.everytime u see pics of madonna u see her kids with her.guy is in usa since aphril and he didnt see is kids yet.u call that a good father???no.madonna no matter what she is always there for them.see her documentary and she how she is with them.shame on u.u are really ignorant

  73. 73

    Re: celebrate – You clueless loser, there have been SEVERAL stories about Madonna's nannies. But who do you think is looking after those kids while she is off doing her own thing. Bottom line if that woman cared about anyone but herself she would be picking up that child herself. Parents with .01% of her wealth spend several weeks in their child's country bonding before taking them home, she can't even pick her up????

  74. 74

    Re: Wonkette – madonna is trying to adopt mercy since 2007.the papers were on court since 2007.why u insist in something u dont know

    Re: Wonkette – u really just believe in what u read.she pics her kids in school everyday.she is a normal mom.guy ritchie her ex husband defends her and says she is an amazing mother.very present.she had one nanny when david was smaller but now he is on school and during that time madonna is working,them she picsthem and go home.she never goes out.she is always with them.abd when she goes out she take them with her.she tol shitney to take her kids with her on tour,cause brit would leave her kids with k-fed for 3 months.madonna is one of the most presences mothe in hollywood.

    She's a really good person. She could easily just enjoy her riches and not even give a second thought about other people. Instead she's changing these kids lives for the better. I think the people hating on her are very mean spirited.

    We'll see what they grow up to be. Probably some brainwashed drug junkies like a lot celebkids, specially when with Vadge. Supposedly, she had to visit Malawi time to time in order to get the first one and now when she has a reason she won't show up. Go Vadge the Old Sea Hag. Probably wants to keep an eye on Lourdes and Jesus.

  96. 96

    how sickening that rich people can skirt by any law!! and even more sickening that this narciscist slut can get her hands on this poor child and take her away from her culture, her extended family, and her biological father, but hey $$$$ talks and bullshit walks, truly grotesque, I hope this bitch burns in hell, she's truly subhuman!
