Madonna’s second adopted child, Mercy is just about the same age as David and is also from Malawi. Not much is known about Mercy, but she has been shown to be incredibly talented on the piano. Madonna also opened a hospital in Malawi named after her.
The adoption process was not easy for Madonna. She met David and Mercy at the same time, but she was only allowed to adopt David. The court then ruled against Madonna, as the judge did not believe a divorced woman was fit to raise a child.
Still, Madonna kept working for adoption rights and finally she was able to bring Mercy into her heart and home. Unfortunately for Madonna, another custody battle may be at the forefront — Mercy’s surviving biological family wants her back.
