Madonna continued on her visit to Malawi, despite the setback this morning when the judge denied Madonna's adoption request. He cited the law in Malawi that an adoptive parent must live in the country at least 18 months prior to becoming the child's parent, which was waived when Madonna adopted David Banda. As expected, her lawyers have already filed for an appeal on Madonna's behalf. The superstar was not present in the courtroom today, but she has been in the country with her three children all week visiting the schools she helped fund. It sounds like Madonna's battle for 3-year-old Mercy isn't over yet, but at this point, it doesn't sound like the superstar is getting special treatment.
