    Multiple sources, like The Daily Mirror, report that singer Amy Winehouse was planning to adopt a 1o-year-old girl from the Caribbean island of St. Lucia before she died over a week ago. Winehouse had met the girl when visiting the island and planned to rescue her from a life of poverty. The girl, named Dannika Augustine, told the paper she loved the "Rehab" singer. The child's biological family supported the adoption, even though Winehouse's public problems with drugs and other substances were well-known.

    Other sources are saying this story is not based in fact.

    Whatever the case, the child did speak to the paper and her family says she is devastated over Wino's death.

    Would you adopt a child from another nation if you had the means?
