Madonna is set to travel with her adopted four year-old daughter Mercy to visit with her father in Malawi. Read more on this story below.
Madonna will take little Mercy to Malawi next week so she can spend some time with her father James Kambewa.
Madonna thinks it’s a good idea for Mercy to bond with her father, who was originally opposed to the adoption. She hopes he can play a role in Mercy’s life.
A source Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Madonna wants Mercy to learn all about her culture and the community where she was born. She realises her kids need a sense of home and she’s determined to do all she can to give that to them. She doesn’t want to deny Mercy anything in life – and that includes meeting her dad if that’s possible.”
Mercy’s father claims that he was told Mercy had died at the time of her birth along with her 19 year-old mother.
After he learned she was alive he opposed the adoption by Madonna and wanted Mercy to live with him.
He said: “I don’t want her to live with Madonna, I want her to be with me. Until now everyone thought Mercy had no father but she has, and I will do anything to prove to the courts that I am her dad and that she should remain with me.”
Madonna is reportedly also taking her adopted three year-old Malawian son,.David Banda, along too.
The singer is scheduled to have dinner with Malawian president Dr Bingu Wa Mutharika, before flying on to New York.
