Madonna, still reeling from a Malawi judge's refusal to let her adopt an orphaned 4-year-old girl named Mercy James, is planning to build a home in the African nation.
Madonna, 50, thinks her 3-year-old-year son David, whom she adopted from Malawi in 2006, would flourish spending more time in his birthplace , according to a source speaking to the UK Sun. It might also boost Madonna's future chances of adopting the girl, as the judge cited a rule that requires prospective parents to live in Malawi for 18 months prior to adopting children.
“Madonna has a big, beautiful plot of land over there already," the source told the Sun. "She’s planning to build a girl’s school in the Chinkhota village and those designs are well under way. But she’s gone back to the designers and asked if they could accommodate a family home on the plot or on adjacent land.”
