Madonna might be adopting a girl from Malawi



Tbdmadonna122208 Madonna may have divorced Guy Ritchie, but that doesn't mean she can't expand her brood in a bizarro Brangelina-style family fest. Star says she's already got her sights on a nother kid as we type, and new boy toy Alex Rodriguez is coming along for the ride!

"She's hoping to bring the toddler home by early next year," a source tells the glossy. That toddler would be 4-year-old Mercy James, a Malawian whose grandparents are too poor to take care of her.

"It breaks our hearts to know she will leave us, but adoption is best for her," Mercy's grandfather, Saxon Maunde, said. A-Rod is supposed to fly with Madge to the African nation to pick up her latest accessory.

We're not going to harp on the actual adoption, but what is it with Madonna and taking kids who actually have living relatives? Is there something wrong with her adopting a Congolese orphan? Is that too big a dose of reality for her? Who would she have legal battles with then?
