Father of Malawan girl rejects Madonna adoption

The father of the girl from Malawi that Madonna has been hoping to adopt says he doesn't want the pop star to adopt his four-year-old child.

But James Kambewa told CBS News that he has never met his daughter, Chifundo (Mercy) James. The interview will be broadcast Monday on The Early Show.

The girl's mother died just days after her baby was born on Jan. 22, 2006.

Kambewa is believed to be the biological father and he says he can take care of his child.

Madonna is appealing a court ruling denying her request to adopt the girl. That appeal is expected to be heard Monday in Malawi.
