Madonna has renewed an attempt to adopt a two-year-old girl from Malawi – despite learning her family are “not interested”.
The pop superstar is keen to re-home Mercy James who currently resides in the same African country from where she adopted her son David Banda.
It is believed the singer plans to give the child back to her family when she is six. But the family have turned down her offer.
The child’s grandmother, Anaphiri Ngalande, says, “When Mercy is no longer a baby we want her back. I don’t want the money they said they’d give me.”
It is the second time Madonna has tried to adopt the child. Last year, the tot’s uncle John blocked an attempt made by her aides.
