Madonna Has Mercy

6/21/2009 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Finally -- the first photo of Madonna holding her newly adopted child, Mercy.


Or, more accurately, the first photo of Madonna's hair, part of her shoulder, and Mercy's left hand.

Who the heck cares WHERE Madonna adopted a child from? The point is she adopted a child in need of a home. I can't stand Madonna but the childish attitude that American kids deserve to be adopted more is just ignorant. Children are children no matter where they happen to be born. I wonder how many children have those complaining about where Madonna adopts, adopted? Unless you yourself have adopted a child you have no business to criticize where someone else goes to adopt one.

Well done Madonna for NOT adopting from the US. US orphans are NOT living in a third world country, filled with aids and a life span of 35. Us orphans have lots of opportunitites and government assistance. Only an Amercian would want Madonna to adopt from the US, but we all know Amercians are selfish, look at the end of the War and how they treated Britian. Go ahead Madonna, NEVER ADOPT A CHILD FROM SUCH A SELFISH COUNTRY, ALWAYS ADOPT FROM COUNTRIES THAT NEED THE HELP

Elle and Australian boy, there are thousands of beautiful, deserving children in America who, through no fault of their own, will spend their childhood years languishing in foster care because they are not the cute little white babies that most prospective parents want to adopt....the statistics on what happens to these kids when they are kicked out of foster care at the age of 18 is pretty grim -- the majority of them end up homeless, on drugs, working as prostitutes, or in jail. Yes, the caretakers of these foster kids receive some money each month to provide basic board and care, but what these children REALLY need and long for is a "forever family", someone to call Mom and Dad: PARENTS. As an American, it would have been wonderful if Madonna had adopted from her home country and shown support for this cause -- perhaps she might have inspired other Americans to consider enhancing their own families by adopting from the foster-care system which needs the help desperately. Doesn't mean she's wrong for adopting from another country where the children are in need, but "charity begins at home". My husband and I are foster parents and we are also in the process of adopting 7-year-old twins and hoping to adopt another child or two when that adoption is finalized, so this is a subject that is dear to my heart and one I feel the need to speak up for.
