(Newser) – Mercy James is living the high life starting today. As Madonna’s lawyer prepares the adoption paperwork, the 4-year-old orphan will move into the singer’s luxury lodge in Malawi to be cared for by a nanny and nurse flown in from the US, the Mirror reports. She could leave for New York this week to meet her new sister and brothers.

“Her life will now change beyond recognition,” says a source. “The next few months will be very strange but Madonna has a tight team around her to ensure that the transition is as smooth and loving as possible.”
