She was originally turned down due to the fact that she didn't reside in the country (although the unofficial reason may have had more to do with her lifestyle), but somehow, Madonna has found away around that law.

"All recommendations are in favor of the adoption taking place," a source tells The Sun. "Mercy should start packing her bags. She's off to America."

The official ruling is set for Sunday.
