Malawi Sticks it to Madge!

And good for them too, it’s about time that somebody stopped Madonna from doing whatever she wanted whenever she wanted to do it. It seems as though this big, ugly divorce that Madge asked for so that she could reap the benefit through ticket and album sales has not only totally backfired on her in the way of losing some fans but the whole mess has also intruded into her other personal decisions…such as her most recent decision to adopt a child from Malawi. It seems that although the adoption has been in the works for quite some time, the Malawi government won’t allow children to be adopted by families that are ‘broken.’ From Now,

“Madonna’s divorce from Guy Ritchie has put paid to her plans to adopt from Malawi again, according to the country’s Child Welfare Services director. The Material Girl has long shown an interest in giving a home to orphan Mercy James, who she first met at an orphanage in 2006.

But Malawian official Penston Kilembe says the split with Guy, 40, means the adoption cannot be approved.

‘One fundamental condition in scrutinising adoptions is the connectedness of a family,’ he says. ‘We can’t approve a child to go into a broken family because the divorce could be the result of the behaviour of the party trying to adopt. Madonna should forget this one.’”

I found the Now article quoted in a Celebitchy article and Celebitchy also stated that Mercy’s extended family didn’t want the child to be taken out of the country – with Madonna or anybody else and although the courts were trying to persuade them to allow Madonna to have her anyway. The unfortunate part is that it seems as though Mercy’s own family can’t adopt the little girl and so hopefully this doesn’t do her any harm in trying to find a good home.

Madonna made controversial headlines last year when she adopted David Banda from Malawi last year. That adoption made major headlines when Madonna was accused of buying the adoption instead of following strict rules that are otherwise set in place. Well it seems it won’t be a problem this time around as someone finally tells Madge that she can’t have it all!
