LONDON: Madonna and Ritchie reunite for mercy reunited in London on Saturday (20Jun09) - to welcome the singer's newly adopted daughter MERCY JAMES into the family.

The three-year-old girl began her new life after spending twelve hours travelling from South Africa to London's Heathrow Airport.

Madonna flew into the British capital on Friday (19Jun09) with her three other children - and there was a further surprise in store when her ex-husband Ritchie joined the clan for a full family reunion.

The divorced couple then attended a Kabbalah meeting with Mercy, their son Rocco, eight, adopted three year old David, and Madonna's 12-year-old daughter Lourdes.

The family was snapped arriving at the London Kabbalah centre on Saturday, where they remained for an hour.

Ritchie then took Rocco and David to his country home in Wiltshire, England for a boys' weekend, leaving Madonna and Lourdes to bond with Mercy.

Madonna won her bid to take home the youngster on 12 June (09) after the Malawian high court approved the adoption.
