Madonna will have to wait to find out if her attempt to adopt a 4-year-old Malawi girl is approved, a court official said Monday.

The 50-year-old pop star spent about an hour in a Malawi court Monday.

Court officials, speaking under conditions of anonymity, said that James' mother died shortly after giving birth to the child.
