The world may mock (Bruno actually has his orphan crated and shipped in that movie), but think about it: where would you rather be? An orphanage in Malawi or in a proper grown up family being sent to the best schools in the world? This is the family. For the schools, you’ll have to do a Google search.
Because Mercy has been shown no mercy by the Malawi government, who have decided that because Madonna has not lived in the country for a minimum of 18 months (add your own comment like ‘why the FUCK would anyone spend any time in Malawi if they didn’t have to?’), then that kid may not have the very best the world has to offer.
Even even if Madonna isn’t Mother of the Year (drug snorting fat liar Kerry Katona has been voted Mum of the Year at various points in her advertising career, so draw your own conclusions on that one), one imagines very highly paid nannies come as standard round the Ciccones’. Besides, Lourdes doesn’t seem to have turned out too damn bad (Bob Geldof please note how to bring your daughter up not to be a teenage whore).
So, it’s game over for orphan Annie/Mercy. Back to orphanage life, being thrown out of that particular institution on her arse the minute she turns 16 and the life of grinding poverty that obviously awaits her. She’ll be so happy when she looks back to find that one chance of a real family was taken away from her…
