Adoption given the okay for Madonna

Madonna has gotten 'the best Christmas gift she's ever received' - the government go-ahead to adopt the Malawi tot to whom she's been the foster mother for more than a year.
After months of waiting - and an initial firestorm of criticism over how she reportedly worked the system to take now-2-year-old David Banda from the tiny African country - the Material Mom, 49, and director hubby Guy Ritchie were finally cleared to adopt the adorable toddler, In Touch Weekly reports.
'Madonna hid it well, but there was a part of her that was worried that the adoption wouldn't go through,' a pal said. 'This is the best Christmas gift she's ever received.'
The child had been living with the singer since October 2006.
