Have Mercy -- Madonna Adoption Approved

6/12/2009 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MadonnaMadonna lost her husband, but just gained a kid -- as a Malawian court just ruled she can adopt a second child from the African country.

The court originally said Madge could not adopt 3-year-old Chifundo "Mercy" James because she hadn't spent enough time in Malawi -- but have since decided that decision was based on outdated laws.

Madonna already has a son from the country, David, who she adopted in 2006.

The Material Girl's rep released this statement on her behalf: "I am ecstatic ... My family and I look forward to sharing our lives with her."

Why is she adopting from africa when there are thousands of children who need a home right here in the USA? I am happy that she is helping a child. To have to get her adopted kids from africa, or any other country seems that there is a social stigma in this for her.

See I said this when she got turned down the first time that she would leave that country with that kid, because somewhere some judge is getting a new house, she buys everything.

I am also glad Madonna is helping children, whreever they may be from, But i agree, there are many orphans in the USA who ned a home. Madonna adopting children is admirable. However,in the long run Madonna is for Madonna. Im aure this type of thing helps her image in the public eye. She has always sadi she is her own best promoter.

What gets me with this whole thing....If she is sooo excited...why isn't she flying over there to pick up her new daughter...instead she is sending her lawyer and a bunch of strangers in a private plane...What a bunch of BS!!!!!

#9 I could not say it any better. What is wrong with these celebs, Mad Mommas Madonna & Jolie. We have so many babies and children in this country that need a loving new family. Must NOT BE the "in" thing to do...adopt a child from your own country.
