Madonna is absolutely NOT giving up on being allowed to adopt Mercy James. Part of the judge’s reasoning on saying no was that Madonna wouldn’t be living in Malawi for 18 months under observation with Mercy following adoption procedures. So Madonna is apparently building a house over there in order to play by the rules.
Madonna has a big, beautiful plot of land over there already. She’s
planning to build a girl’s school in the Chinkhota village and those designs
are well under way.
But she’s gone back to the designers and asked if they could accommodate a
family home on the plot or on adjacent land.
Wow. Nobody could doubt her commitment to this child now, right?
