Father of Mercy James Wants Madonna to Back Off!

Things are not looking good for Madonna and the adoption of Mercy James. First, she was denied adopting little Mercy James and now a man claiming to be Mercy's biological dad is trying to stop Madonna from taking his daughter out of Malawi.

"I want to take care of her, and I'm capable of taking care of my baby," Mercy's father told CBS's The Early Show in an interview which is set to air Monday.

"Mercy, she is a Malawian, so [I] need her to grow as a Malawian ... with our culture," he added.

Monday is a big day for Madge. Her case will be heard in court and the judges that rejected the adoption the first time around will give the case another listen.

Note that Madonna is not trying to go to Malawi and take kids away from their families. This man that is alleging to be the dad has never in fact met his daughter and he claims that he has only seen her "in newspapers and TV, not face to face."

Mercy has been in an orphanage all her life because her mother had died at a very young age. Madge met Mercy back in 2006 when she was in Malawi adopting David Banda.

Do you guys think Madonna should be able to adopt Mercy James?
