A young Malawian holds up a handwritten sign saying “Adopt me” outside Lilongwe High Court, where the ruling on US pop star Madonna’s bid for adoption of 3 year old Chifundo James was taking place, Friday April 3, 2009. A judge has rejected Madonna’s request to adopt a second child from Malawi because of a requirement that prospective parents live in the southern African nation for at least 18 months, another judge and a lawyer said Friday.
