When a court in Malawi turned down Madonna's application to adopt a little girl, a lot of people were shocked.

I'm no fan of hers, but I think any child is better off growing up in a family rather than in an orphanage.


But now Celebrity Baby Blog reports that a higher court reversed the lower court's ruling and preparations are underway for Madonna to bring three-year-old Mercy (Chifundo Mercy James) to America on a private jet.

“I am extremely grateful for the Supreme Court’s ruling on my application to adopt Mercy James. I am ecstatic … My family and I look forward to sharing our lives with her,” Madonna said in a statement through her spokesperson Friday.

Congratulations to Madonna and her family!
