Despite protests from human rights groups, Madonna’s adoption plans in Malawi are a “go.” The Malawian government has announced its full support for the singer’s adoption of four-year-old Mercy, according to Reuters:
Malawian Information Minister Patricia Kaliati said Madonna had helped in the country and was a worthy mother.
“Madonna has been good to us, she is supporting over 25,000 orphans in this country and she has proved that she can take care of David,” Kaliati told Reuters.
“Very few rich and famous people can take time to fly all the way to Malawi to support our children we support her adoption process.”
Adding “She also found our sacrifice of Gucci purses filled with goat’s blood to be acceptable and has agreed not to breathe fire upon us from above. Although, she said that after adopting David and totally lit up our harvest anyway. But we’re confident she means it this time. — Fingers crossed.”
