The biological father of Madonna’s adopted daughter Mercy has begged the superstar to send him photographs of the child.

The Material Girl took the four year old home from a Malawi orphanage last year after her father James Kambewa gave up his legal fight for the child in June.

Kambewa never met his daughter – who he thought had died with her mother during birth – because he moved to South Africa to work as a waiter.

He was left devastated in April after missing out on the chance to see his daughter when Madonna returned with Mercy to Malawi to launch the construction of her girls school.

Now Kambewa has made a public plea for the singer to forward him pictures of the tot – and he is still intent on being reunited with his biological child one day.

He tells Britain’s Daily Mail, “I would appreciate if Madonna could send me pictures of how she looks like now as I don’t get any pleasure of being with her.

“It’s emotionally painful for me as a father. I’m very happy that Madonna is taking care of her. But as a parent, from the moment I heard that she was still alive, I wanted to meet her and I’m hopeful that I’ll meet her one day.”
