According to reports, Amy Winehouse was about to begin the process of adopting 10 year old Dannika Augustine from St. Lucia.
Dannika had been living in poverty with her single mom and agreed to let Amy adopt her. The two had become very close over the last two years.
“Amy was already my mother,” Dannika said. “I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me. She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone.”
Dannika’s grandmother, Marjorie Lambert, told the tabloid she had hired a lawyer to begin the adoption process. “Amy used to beg me, ‘I want to adopt Dannika. I want to take her to England,’ she recalled. “She was prepared to move to St Lucia to be her full-time mum. Amy wanted to have a child so bad.
“If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process,” she continued. “There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her.”
