So, Madonna is back in London. This is about the child she wants to adopt, so for now Madonna is out of the post. Bye Madonna, don't let the door hit you on the way out. OK, so Mercy James who, as I have said before has a great name for a singer or a song is back in the orphanage. Well yesterday, dad turned up and said he didn't know his daughter was alive until he saw all the news about her. He just assumed she had died with her mother. See, the dad ran away when he got Mercy's mom pregnant. He did hear later that she died a week after giving birth. He didn't bother checking to see if his daughter was alive or not.
Now, he says that he wants to take care of Mercy and that if he had known she was alive that of course he would have taken care of her. Meanwhile, Mercy's family have all agreed to Madonna adopting Mercy. Yes, even the grandmother. I'm guessing Madonna slipped them as much money as was necessary and so now they all want the adoption to go through. So, that leaves dear old dad facing the wrath of the rest of the family because they want to get paid. I'm assuming they only get paid if the adoption is approved.
I'm wondering if the dad really cares about Mercy or if he wants to be like David Banda's dad and get a nice monthly stipend from Madonna for basically handing over his kid. Should the dad be given his daughter? Do we believe him? How greedy is the family that they just want money and are willing to give up Mercy for money?
