Madonna granted permission to adopt two more kids from Malawi

USA superstar Madonna adopted two 4-year-old twin girls from Malawi yesterday, said a court official in Lilongwe, adding to two other children she previously adopted from the country.

United States (US) singer, songwriter, actress and philanthropist, Madonna, has been granted permission by a Malawian High Court to adopt two more children from the country.

"Today the High Court made a ruling that she should go ahead and adopt the two children", said Mlenga Mvula, a spokesman for Malawi's judiciary. Madonna adopted David Banda and Mercy James from Malawi in 2006 and 2009, and also established a health and education nonprofit in the country called Raising Malawi.

Venus and Serena Williams to meet in Australian Open final
Serena started the better, breaking for a 3-1 lead in the first set, but unforced errors eventually allowed Venus to dominate. If Serena advances to the semifinals, she'll become the second oldest Australian Open women's semifinalist in the Open Era.

She also has a son, Rocco, from her marriage to film director Guy Ritchie and a daughter, Lourdes, from a previous relationship.

Just two weeks ago, she denied being involved in a fresh adoption application in Malawi, where she has been caught up in controversy. Later that day Madonna told USA magazine People in a statement that "the rumors of an adoption process are untrue". In a statement to Us Weekly, she said she was in the country to take care of work at Raising Malawi, the nonprofit organization she founded in 2006. This year, the philanthropic group will build Malawi's first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit, the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care. Madonna raises her kids in the spirit of tolerance and ability to stretch the hand of help to every person who needs it right now. The charity has raised millions towards helping impoverished orphans and vulnerable children.
