London, Apr 23 (ANI): Even though Madonna's bid to adopt Malawi
tot Mercy James did not go through, the Queen Of Pop has made sure
that the four-year-old is well taken care of by leaving a nanny to
look after her.
Madge's request for an interim adoption was turned down by a
court in the capital Lilongwe earlier this month, and Mercy was
sent back to the Kondanai Children's Home, while the singer
"During her farewell party at the lodge, Madonna instructed a
nurse and a nanny to remain behind and care for Mercy while her
lawyers appeal," the Daily Star quoted a source as telling
Britain's Daily Mirror.
The singer, who is appealing against the adoption ruling, made
sure provisions were in place to extend her care to the child,
according to orphanage director Anne Chikhwaza.
"As Mercy's legal guardian, I authorise where she goes. She is
staying with Madonna's people as a visitor. There is nothing wrong
with that," Chikhwaza said.
Madonna's appeal on the adoption bid is set to be heard in an
African court on May 4. (ANI)
