Dad Won’t Fight Madonna

The father of Madonna’s newly adopted child says he will no longer fight the star’s plan to adopt Mercy. “Let the child go…My only plea to Madonna is that she should seriously look after the child,” he said. “I am asking Madonna to make sure that, while the child is growing, she must be informed of me as her biological father…she really must know that while she is far away the father is still alive,” he said. Malawi’s Supreme Court overturned a lower court’s decision to allow Madonna to adopt the four-year-old, who lived in an orphanage. Her father, James Kambewa, said he wasn’t aware his daughter existed until recently. Madonna adopted another child from the country in 2006. The country doesn’t permit non-residents to adopt children. The star reportedly donated millions to Malawi orphanages before winning the appeal.
