Photos of Madonna, Who's Written in a Malawian Newspaper of Her Desired Adoption of Mercy James, at Heathrow

Madonna Keeps Up Her Fight For Mercy

Madonna and her daughter Lourdes were hand-in-hand yesterday at Heathrow airport. The girls arrived in London with David and Rocco last week after their trip to Malawi to adopt Mercy James. Along with her legal appeal, this weekend she e-mailed the country's The Nation newspaper to explain her motives. She wrote:

"I want to provide Mercy with a home, a loving family environment and the best education and healthcare possible. And it's my hope that she like David, will one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country. . . Though I have been advised that I cannot publicly discuss the pending appeal regarding my desire to adopt Mercy, I do want to say how much I appreciate the level of support that I have received from the people of Malawi and my friends around the world."

It seems as though time is of the essence, as Mercy is said to have gone into hiding while the paternity claims of a man who say he's her father are investigated. Madonna is lucky to be surrounded by great friends during this time, and for the sake of Mercy, hopefully, the lawsuit is settled quickly and in her best interests.

Hum, I wonder if Lukin is right. Either way I hope the little girl ends up in the right place.

It will help a lot if she would stop sleeping with married men and teenagers!

I honestly think this government is trying to get more money out of her before they will let her adopt the child, which is unfortunate.

please don't tell me her sunglasses have those chains I like to attribute to being "a little older" lmao...there's always a motive with Madonna...even having Lourdes was due to her wanting a "love child" at the time.....such a loonie

what she really meant to say was"what? I am the great and mighty Madonna, and you must give me everything I ask for and want, Havent I provided you people with enough money, kabbalah water and glimpses of my greatness since I adopted Whats his name? This child, Mercy, will make me feel young again. All the botox injections and young fresh men arent doing the trick, I must have a child!"

well i think that it's well phrased how she talked about things here and i hope that it all works out. she's not looking to exploit the child - just give her a great home and all the opportunities that she can.

I hope Mercy is well taken care of and I don't think living with Madonna is a bad thing. If her father can't provide or properly take care of her...I hope she is given to Madonna.
