Madonna Appeals Court's Adoption Rejection

Madonna's not going down without a fight.

After her application to adopt another child from Malawi was rejected this morning, the singer has appealed the court's decision.

"I have just filed a notice for the appeal," said her lawyer, Alan Chinula. He added that no date has been set for the appeal yet.

Madonna is being kept from taking 3-year-old Mercy James home by the country's residency requirement, which states prospective parents must live in Malawi for 18-24 months.
