Madonna sends team to Malawi

Madonna has reportedly sent a team to Malawi to find her a new adopted daughter. The Material Girl singer, who adopted two-year-old son David Banda from the African country last year, is said to be desperate to find a little girl to bring home. Madonna, who also has an 11-year-old daughter Lourdes and a seven-year-old son Rocco, reportedly told staff, “Don’t rest until you’ve found me my princess.”

She has sent her aides to search the Malawi region of Salima for an orphan and has told them to draw up a shortlist of nine children whose families won’t block the adoption. The pop superstar had planned to adopt a 20-month-old girl, Mercy, but was said to be devastated when her family blocked her application. Mercy’s uncle, Peter Banet, said, “I’d rather be struggling with Mercy than for her to live with a big white star far away.” A source added to Britain’s the Sun newspaper, “Madonna is heartbroken about Mercy. She told everyone she was her new daughter and carried her picture around. All she dreams about is a sister for David.”
