According to Mirror, Amy Winehouse was in the process of adopting a ten-year-old girl named Dannika from St.Lucia because her family was too poor to care for her.
Amy had booked her ticket to visit the schoolgirl next week. The child’s grandmother revealed the singer had already hired lawyers for the adoption, but her plans were cut short by her sudden death last week aged just 27.
Winehouse had met Dannika while she was visiting the Carribean, and felt a connection with the girl who was being cared for by her single mother. Unfortunately, her mother was finding it difficult to even feed the girl due to their money problems.
Young Dannika had some statements to make about the singer/songwriter, “Amy was already my mother. I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me.
She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”
