Madonna's Mercy Joins Her New Family in London

Mercy arrived in London from Malawi via private jet just in time to join her family for Kabbalah services on Saturday in London. Even Guy Ritchie helped welcome Madonna's new addition before taking Rocco and David for the weekend. Mercy looked adorable in her pink dress outside of Madonna's apartment yesterday morning, though she's understandably a little confused by all of the attention. Hopefully, it won't be long before she settles into her new life, starting with some bonding time with her mom and sister.

So happy for them, Mercy will have so many opportunities, she has a whole family now. Madonna really started to think about Africa after Bob Geldof's Live 8 and it's good to see how much she has done so far, not talking about the adoptions but her foundation and documentary about Malawi. The point for me is that she's actually doing something. And Lola is beautiful, great to see Guy with them.

This little girl is beautiful and she looks so sad in that picture. I'm sure she'll be well cared for monetarily, but I really hope it isn't true that Madonna couldn't change her schedule or make the time to go pick up her new daughter herself. That's heartbreaking and makes me wonder what her true priorities are. Especially after making such a big deal publicly about the fact that the adoption almost didn't go through.

I hope this baby has a happy life with Madonna. I wish them the best in the coming years.

I'm definitely rolling my eyes at the circumstances, i.e., African baby, bending the rules, Madge being a strict parent, but the kid is going to have a comfortable life. So good for Mercy.

thank you Joedi....there are plenty of starving children here that need help, but you never hear about celebs adopting them. i really am starting to think that there are trends. anyways, i do commend madonna...even though she bent the rules to suit herself, but at least there will be one less hungry child in the world. hopfully she is a good mother to all her children.

I think its great! Madonna wanted another child so she adopted one. It doesn't matter whether the child is white, black, Asian or any other race, the point is that child didn't have a home and now she does with a loving parent who is going to love her and take care of her! Who cares where she adopted her from, IMO I think Madonna met mercy shared a bond with her and knew in her heart that was her child! Anyways congrats to Madonna and mercy.

Who cares where the kids are from? Why should that matter in an adoption? Which country in your estimation is adoption worthy?

Sorry for the run-on sentence.

PS - I'm black and I think as long as you give the kid enough background of who they are where they came from, it's all good...I love mixed families, mine is full of nationalities which makes us awesome

Well said Love Angelina. I am so sick of all the negative spins being placed on adoption simply because a few celebs people don't like are adopting suddenly they forget that it's a good thing that someone wants these children, regardless of race, and can provide them with a life that they couldn't even have dreamed of before. Any adoption that gives a kid a better and happier life than is currently projected for them is a good one.

People should adopt whoever the heck they want...I think Africa has always seemed like they have the most orphans and people living in poverty when in fact the middle of America is full of underprivileged people/kids...my mom and I took a summer and drove across the country (NY to Cali) and some things we saw were horrible and heartbreaking...being from the NYC area, I was so blinded by the way my family and I lived and thought all of America is middle/upper class...someone like Madonna is probably enjoying the media but ultimately, I think the kid may have a better life

LOVE ANGELINA, get serious. When one country cracks down on adoption, another opens up--not because the children so desperately need it, but because you can cater to the needs of white Westerners. And yes, it's about the white Westerners, not the adoptees. There are rampant stories of children being sold for adoption, being kidnapped from parents, etc. When the government of that country becomes aware of it, they crack down with harsher laws, and the would-be adopters go to another, less regulated country. Ethiopia is a hot spot now--soon it will be someplace else. And Africa is not all poverty and AIDS, and exporting the next generation certainly isn't going to solve the continent's problems. If Madonna loves Malawi so much, she could have invested in infrastructure in these villages that would have enabled these children to be raised in their own families and cultures.
