Madonna and Lourdes Share a Secret

04/07/2010 at 03:00 PM ET

While holding 4-year-old Mercy James, Madonna whispers to elder daughter Lourdes, 13, during a Monday visit to Gumulira, Malawi. The popstar is in the country — where she adopted Mercy and son David Banda from — to begin work on her Raising Malawi Academy for Girls, scheduled to open in 2011.

Lourdes is simply gorgeous, and what a great big sister to a lucky darling little girl, Mercy james. Never Stop, You Go Girl. You have been my idol from day 1, Madonna. Love You, you do good works.

i think it’s good that Mercy and David get to go back to malawi from time to time. They probably know all about their story and it’s a good thing. Lourdes is very pretty, i’m sure she’s very smart too given the wonderful education her mother ( and father) gave her. Lucky kids indeed!

I think Madonna was reaching over to give Lourdes a kiss. Lourdes also kissed little Mercy and the following day Madonna kissed Mercy and Lourdes kissed Madonna, lol. It seems they all get along really well and are closely bonded. Lourdes is a real beauty, inside and out. Sweet children and kudos to Madonna.
