Madonna was photographed visiting the Raising Malawi Kabbalah School in the Namitete District Lilongwe, Malawi, on Sunday. The 50-year-old Queen of Pop was accompanied by her daughter Lourdes Leon, 12, sons Rocco Ritchie, 8, and David Banda Ritchie, 3.
Madonna arrived in the impoverished African nation over the weekend in hopes of adopting 4-year-old Chifundo James, whose name translates in English to Mercy. The girl’s 18-year-old mother died shortly after giving birth. At this time, it’s unclear if the child has any surviving relatives. This morning, Madonna attended an hour-long closed-door hearing in Malawi’s Lilongwe High Court as Judge Esme Chombo heard her application to adopt a second child from Malawi. No official ruling was made, and Madonna’s case has been adjourned until Friday, when a second hearing will take place in the nation’s capital.

On whether her pregnancy is being written into Gossip Girl: “They aren’t incorporating. I’m using bigger just bigger handbags to cover it up!”
On pregnancy the second time around: “It’s different. I think the first time, everything’s so new. The second time, it’s just as exciting but there are things that you’ve already explored and understand, so it’s a little bit easier on a certain level.”
On preparing Hermes for the new arrival: “He’s so excited. We read books and talk about it with playdates and things. He’s really excited about it.”
On whether she’d pose for Playboy like her Melrose Place pal Lisa Rinna: “She did Playboy when she was pregnant! She has an insane body! I’m a realist. I look more like a real mom.”
The Brazilian beauty describes first meeting Tom, shortly after his split from his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan: “You know that feeling of, like, you can’t get enough?” Gisele asks. “From the first day we met, we’ve never spent one day without speaking to each other.”
Then, 2 1/2 months into their relationship, Gisele, 28, says they learned that Bridget was pregnant with Tom’s child.
“It was definitely a surprise for both of us. In the beginning you’re living this romantic fantasy; you’re thinking, This can’t be true, it’s so good! And then, Whoops – wake-up call!”
Tom’s son John is now 19 months old, and Gisele gushes that “He’s a little angel – the sweetest, most cuddly, loving baby. I feel blessed to have him in my life.”
She admits she’s never met Bridget, but says, “I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child. I feel it is, 100 percent. I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.”
When she first found out Tom was going to be a dad Gisele admits that she considered leaving and encouraging him to reunite with his ex, but in the end decided that “when people break up, it’s for a reason.”
Now, a month after their surprise wedding, the supermodel reveals that she is thankful for how it all happened.
“I think it was a blessing, because otherwise I don’t think I would have known what he was made of, and he wouldn’t have known what I was made of.”

The 37-year-old Dancing With the Stars Season 7 champ recently offered her advice to moms: “Everybody is going to tell you the ‘right way’ to be a mom. I don’t think there is a right way. It’s not about being a perfect mother: It’s about doing the best you can every day.”
