AMY WINEHOUSE

IN THE PROCESS OF ADOPTING

A GIRL BEFORE DEATH

7/31/2011 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amy Winehouse Adoption
Amy Winehouse was preparing to adopt a 10-year-old girl from the island of St. Lucia, the girl and her grandmother told a British paper today. 

The girl -- Dannika Augustine (seen above with Amy) -- says she met the singer during one of Amy's visits to the island over the past few years. She says she was living in poverty with her single mom when Amy took an interest in her. 

Dannika tells The Sunday Mirror, "Amy was already my mother. I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me ... She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me."

Dannika's grandmother Marjorie says she spoke to Amy a few weeks ago and that Amy planned to return to St. Lucia next month. She told the paper, "Amy wanted to have a child so bad. If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process. There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her."
 
Both of Dannika's parents had signed off on the adoption.

This story is false ... WHICH agency would allow someone with AW's history of addictions to adopt? Either this story is fabricated, or the grandma and her daughter were paid by a media company to give such a fabricated story.

Further, the child care authorities in St Lucia would never allow someone with AW's reputation to take a child away for adoption purposes - NEVAH!!

This story is pure propaganda, and someone probably got paid for it. Makes no sense at all.

Too bad Amy Winehouse did not realize her dream of becoming a mother because she died much too soon.

Another site claims Amy father denied this story. Also, why would a child with a living grandmother and TWO parents need to be adpoted? STUPID story!
