Madonna is back in Malawi, this time setting the wheels in motion to adopt a baby girl named Mercy James. Between her concert tour to promote her new album, her brother's "unauthorized" tell-all book (which she co-wrote), and her apparent rocky marriage to Guy Ritchie, it's a wonder she even has time to go through the adoption process all over again.
But then, this is Madonna and she has the energy of a 17-year-old, so off she goes to help raise another child in need. It's admirable no matter what the critics say and I applaud her for attempting to raise another child at 50... yeah, yeah, I know, she has a boatload of nannies and cooks and all that jazz... but at least Mercy will be living a good life from here on in, right?
Pictured above is Madonna with David Banda, the boy she adopted from an orphanage in Malawi in 2006 (the adoption was finalized in May 2008).
