The Queen of Pop, known to pals as Em, will cocoon the youngster at her Marylebone home, while she settles into her new life, according to pals. “Em has been waiting for this moment for years, but realises that she shouldn"t over-stimulate Mercy by immediately smothering her with attention and things to do," British tabloid The Sun quoted a family friend as saying.
“After all, she has been in this before when she brought David home from Malawi so she understands how confusing it must be. The next few days are all about cocooning Mercy from the world and getting her used to being around her new family. Em had hoped to have all the children together for the next few days. “But David couldn"t contain his excitement and was tearing round the house like a runaway horse. He kept shouting, 'I want to see my sister," and endlessly hugging and tugging at her.
“In the end it was best to pack him off with Rocco to Guy"s place in Wiltshire. Guy has been here to meet Mercy too. Em has a gentle few days planned ahead, with lots of singing and reading to her new daughter. Mercy has already fallen in love with the 2,000-pound rocking horse Em has placed in her bedroom. She can"t take her eyes off it," the friend added,
Madonna first spotted Mercy at an orphanage during her first visit to Malawi in 2006, but chose to adopt David Banda instead after the tot"s grandmother refused to let her go.
