LONDON - Queen of pop Madonna's newly adopted daughter Mercy James was seen beaming happily as she played with her nursery school friends ahead of her journey to begin a new life in the US.
Mercy, 4, was playing at the school in Lilongwe, Malawi, on June 16 as arrangements were being made for her to join her famous new mother in New York.
Madge's senior aide Philppe van de Bossche arrived in the country on Tuesday to join Mercy, and to prepare her immigration papers.
"A nursery teacher came to the lodge in the morning to keep up with her English lessons but in the afternoons she was allowed to play on the lawn," the Daily Express quoted a source at the Kumbali Lodge, where Madonna stays during her visits to Malawi, as saying.
"She was playing on a rocking horse and looked very happy and content," the source added. (ANI)
