Sunday, April 12, 2009

Heading out of London following a week long stay, Madonna was spotted making her way through Heathrow Airport on Sunday (April 12).

Accompanied by her daughter Lourdes, the pair strolled through the departures terminal hand-in-hand after passing through the security checkpoint.

Meanwhile, Madge broke her silence following ehr denied adoption attempt of 3-year-old orphan Mercy James in Malawi.

Responding to questions from Malawian newspaper Nation, the Material Girl tells: "I want to provide Mercy with a home, a loving family environment and the best education and healthcare possible. And it's my hope that she, like David, will one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country."

The 50-year-old Queen of Pop adds: "Though I have been advised that I cannot publicly discuss the pending appeal regarding my desire to adopt Mercy, I do want to say how much I appreciate the level of support that I have received from the people of Malawi and my friends around the world."
