Madonna's Adoption Hits A Snag

Madonna's adoption of a Malawian girl has been delayed.


According to a court official the singer spent an hour in court this morning, but the legal meeting ended with a judge delaying the ruling on Madge's adoption application for 3-year-old Mercy James.

Apparently the little girls' grandmother is against Madonna adopting the child.

"Why doesn't this singer pick other children?" Lucy Chekechiwa told Britain's The Sun. "It is stealing. I want to go to court. I won't let her go."

Mercy's mom passed away at 18, right after she gave birth to her, but her dad is believed to be alive.

Fine, now I feel bad for everyone.
