According to overseas reports, Winehouse and Dannika Augustine, from St Lucia, became incredibly close over the last 24 months.
"Amy was already my mother," Dannika told The Sunday Mail.
"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."
Apparently Dannika’s grandmother Marjorie Lambert had already hired a lawyer to kick off the process.
"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," Ms Lambert said.
“If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process.
"There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her.”
