'I am extremely grateful for the Supreme Court's ruling on my application to adopt Mercy James. I am ecstatic....My family and I look forward to sharing our lives with her,' Madonna said in a statement through her spokesperson Friday.
Preparations are already underway to bring Chifundo 'Mercy' James, 3, from the African country to America private jet, after the singer stayed up throughout the night hoping for a courtroom victory.
'It's the early hours in New York now but my client has been awake all night waiting for this,' Madonna's Malawi lawyer, Alan Chinula, tells PEOPLE. The attorney spoke to his client as soon as the ruling was made official, at around 2 a.m. her time Friday. 'She was ecstatic when I broke the news to her. She said, 'Thank heavens.''
