Family allegedly confirms Madonna will adopt a girl



Madonna is reportedly preparing to fly to Malawi to bring home
another adopted child, just months after officially announcing her
separation from Guy Ritchie.



The pop superstar is said to have signed paperwork to adopt Mercy
James from Malawi, the same country where she adopted her son David
Banda in 2006.



And now the 4-year-old girl's grandfather has allegedly confirmed the exchange will occur early next year.



The family patriarch tells Star magazine, "It breaks our hearts to know she will leave us, but adoption is best for her."



James' mother Mwandida died at 18 just days after giving birth to her daughter.



Madonna and filmmaker Ritchie's split was announced in October, ending months of speculation.



The superstar filed for divorce citing Ritchie's "unreasonable
behavior" and was granted a preliminary split on November 21. The
divorce is due to be rubber-stamped in the New Year.
