Star Adoptive Broods

The adoption process hasn't been easy for Madonna, who had legal entanglements in trying to adopt David Banda, a 13-month-old whose mom died a month after giving birth, in Malawi in May 2008. Human rights groups and the boy's father cried foul, claiming the singer had swooped into the African nation (where there are no set adoption laws) to take him, but ultimately the adoption was finalized. After courting controversy with David, now 4, she again had a difficult time in 2009 trying to bring then-3-year-old Mercy James into her family from Malawi. Adoption requests for Mercy were initially rejected but a heartbroken Madge appealed and now the littlest Material Girl, also 4, is happily living with her big sibs -- Lourdes, 13, and Rocco, 9.
