Madonna Arrives in Malawi

Madonna's adopted son David was reunited with his father, Yohane Banda, after the pop singer arrived in Malawi yesterday to adopt Mercy, a four-year-old girl she first met when she adopted David, The Times of London reports. An employee of the Kumbali lodge outside the country's capital of Lilongwe, where the reunion took place, said Yohane was so happy that he was hopping from foot to foot, although the actual reunion was private. Madonna's adoption of David three years ago became mired in controversy as she was apparently able to bypass the 18 to 24-month assessment period required by Malawian law.
