London: Amy Winehouse reportedly had plans to adopt a 10-year-old girl whom she had befriended in St Lucia.
The tragic singer, who was found dead in her North London home on July 23, had planned to take up the responsibility of Dannika Augustine.
Winehouse had developed a strong bond with the poverty-stricken girl and her family during her lengthy stays on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, reported Femalefirst.
"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," said Augustine.
Her grandmother Majorie Lambert, who runs a beach bar close to the villa where Winehouse liked to stay, added, "Amy loved Dannika with all her heart. From the moment they met they were inseparable.
"Amy used to beg me, `I want to adopt Dannika. I want to take her to England.` She was prepared to move to St Lucia to be her full-time mum.
"Amy wanted to have a child so bad. If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process."
Lambert said that Augustine`s mother Nadia Germaine was willing to have the youngster adopted because she couldn`t afford to bring her daughter up alone, while the girl`s father Vic Augustine, who lives in Germany, was also consulted about the proposal.
