Madonna finaly won the war with the Malawi officials for the adoption of three years old Chifundo “Mercy” James.The condition imposed by the officials was that to be eligible for adoption Madonna needed to stay there for 6 months.The high court said the first judge had imposed too narrow a definition of residency, and lauded Madonna for her work with children in a poor country where half a million have lost a parent to AIDS.

Madonna’s Raising Malawi, a charity founded in 2006, helps feed, educate and provide medical care for some of Malawi’s orphans.The airport employee, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter, said 3-year-old Chifundo “Mercy” James left late Friday headed to London, with a stop in neighboring South Africa.
