Madonna Still Looking to Adopt

After her application to adopt Mercy James from Malawi were struck down by the courts in April, Madonna hasn’t given up! Not only is she still on the beaten path to try and adopt Mercy James but she’s also trying to find another African country to adopt from, should her plans for Mercy fall through. Apparently, this second country was a perfect choice since it’s AIDS infested and there are many children looking for good homes. Can I just say, I think there are plenty of children in America who are sick and looking for good homes? I don’t understand why Madonna thinks that adopting overseas makes her look so much better than everyone else. From Contact Music,

“MADONNA is set to turn her attentions to orphanages in the African country of Lesotho if she is denied the chance to adopt MERCY JAMES from Malawi.
The pop superstar launched a legal battle to adopt Mercy, four, in April (09) but her bid was turned down on the grounds that prospective parents have to be resident in the country for 18 to 24 months prior to an adoption.
The singer, who previously adopted a Malawian boy called David in 2006, appealed the ruling and is awaiting a verdict from three High Court judges in the country later this month (Jun09).
And Madonna has already got plans in place to search for prospective daughter from another African nation, according to British newspaper the Mail on Sunday.
A source tells the publication, “Madonna is not a patient person, she’s used to getting what she wants. She has said she won’t give up on Mercy, but if she’s blocked from adopting her legally, then she will think about trying to adopt another baby. She has already started looking at other African countries. She has promised David a sister and she wants another African child.
“She has done some research on Lesotho and because it’s a place that is ravaged by AIDS and has a high number of orphans, it could be the perfect second choice.”
A representative for Madonna insists the star is still hopeful she will be successful in her bid to take Mercy home, saying, “There is no news on when the ruling is going to happen. We remain hopeful.”

Yes, we all know that Madonna is determined and impatient. I’d wish her well in her endeavor but I really hate Madonna and I find joy in it every time someone tells her no.
