There has been speculations that Madonna will again adopt two kids from Malawi after a government spokesman in Malawi had told the Associated Press that Madonna appeared before the High Court to
file for adoption, and would have to wait about a week for the court to decide whether to grant the adoption order.
Madonna refuted those claims. “I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home,” She said.
In 2008, the pop star adopted David Banda with then husband, Guy Ritchie, from Malawi. A year later, she went back to the country and adopted Mercy James. Both children are now 11 years old.
The 58 year old pop star also has two biological children, 20-year-old Lourdes Leon and 16-year-old Rocco Ritchie.
Madonna’s love for Malawi came long before she adopted David and Mercy. In 2006, she founded the charity Raising Malawi, which supports orphans and vulnerable children in the African country through health, education and community support.
