Madonna is in Malawi to apply today to adopt a little girl called Mercy James.
She attended a court hearing to start the process and with the process now adjourned until Friday.
Mercy James’ is a four year old orphan whose mother reportedly died at the age of 18.
The singer has been visiting villages in the poor African country- with her daughter Lourdes- and will reportedly open a school in Malawi soon.
The Queen of pop has also met leading politicians from the region in a bid to make sure this adoption goes smoothly.
Madge adopted baby David Banda in 2006 but ran into legal difficulties after taking him back to Britain.
A spokesperson from Children’s charity Save The Children criticised the adoption saying: “The problem is, very often this is the wrong thing to do, and Madonna tends to make it seem like it's the answer to everything and all problems, and it just isn't.”
