U.S. superstar Madonna granted permission to adopt twin girls from Malawi

But many in Malawi have accused the government of giving the singer a special exception to laws that prevent non-residents from adopting children to take overseas.
After initially denying the rumours she was going to adopt, the 58-year-old appeared in the country's High Court this week alongside her lawyer and the twins' father and uncle to witness the procedure.
This is Madonna's third adoption after adopting son David Banda in 2006 and daughter Mercy James in 2009 from Malawi.
The pop star in 2006 founded the charity Raising Malawi to address the issues of poverty and hardship among the country's orphans and vulnerable children.
The twins will be adopted from the Home of Hope orphanage in Mchinji, near the western border of Zambia, according to the Guardian. She also has two other children, daughter Lourdes and son Rocco.
The high court of Malawi ruled today to allow Madonna to adopt twin girls from the country.

Now she has even more reasons to be thankful. The singer already has two other adopted children from Malawi, in addition to two biological children of her own. So Madonna has been coming to Malawi frequently.
The twins, Stella and Esther, will travel to the United States under the supervision of a Malawian chaperone who will report on the suitability of the adoption before the High Court allow them to remain at Madonna's home.
She posted a photo on Instagram of herself walking along a rural path with the girls, who were wearing identical blue and white dresses and one wearing a hat.
The pop icon will be under observation by the court for 12 months before the adoption process is officially complete.
The UK newspaper, Daily Mail gave a brief fact file of the " formidable judge" who decided Madonna adoption bid, British-educated Fiona Mwale with her photo indicating it was sourced fron Nyasa Times.
