Madonna And Mercy To Reunite In London

USMagazine.com reports that after months of waiting and negotiating, Madonna‘s new adopted daughter Mercy James has finally united with the singer in London.

Mercy flew on a private jet from Malawi to London, where Madonna has a home. An airport employee as well as another source said that the 3-year-old girl left late Friday, accompanied by a nanny, a child nurse and another assistant.

Last week, Malawi’s high court overturned an earlier ruling that Madonna would not be allowed to adopt a second child from Malawi because she had not spent enough time in the country.

Mercy should have reached London Saturday morning (June 20) to join her new mother, David, 3, also adopted from Malawi, Lourdes, 12 and Rocco, 8.

    Why wouldn’t she personally pick up her new troph- oops, I mean daughter? She has someone else do that task for her?

    Hopefully she is already there and not a single photo was taken of her. The press is so out of control in LA, NY, and London. I bet there are packs of photogs outside Madonna’s house.

    Lourdes looks taller than Madonna now.

    I know not everyone is going to agree with this comment, but why can’t some of these stars adopt kids from right here in the U.S.? There are plenty of kids here who also need homes? It’s like adopting overseas is the “hip” thing to do or something…..don’t get me wrong, I know there are kids ALL over the world who need homes…..so it is still nice!

    I would guess that the stars don’t want to adopt kids from the US because of the enormous lawsuit potential, and probably because the children in these other countries have less opportunity to escape poverty than do the people in the US. Just a guess, though.

    Quite frankly, it’s often easier (and a lot of times, cheaper) to adopt internationally. Especially if you dopt from a country that, you know, normally allows adoptions.
