Madonna Given Approval To Adopt Malawian Toddler Mercy James
Madonna launched a legal battle to adopt Mercy in April but her bid was rejected on the grounds that prospective parents have to be resident in the country for 18 to 24 months prior to an adoption.
Madonna, who had previously adopted a Malawian-born David Banda in 2006, subsequently appealed the ruling.
The final verdict is expected to be announced at Malawi's Supreme Court of Appeal on Sunday.
