Just a couple of months after Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt dismissed rumours they were getting a divorce, they are reportedly set to adopt a Syrian orphan to add to three adopted children, Maddox from Cambodia, Zahara from Ethiopia and Pax from Vietnam as well as three biological children, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox.
It is said that Jolie, who had her ovaries removed last year as a preventive measure for cancer had been devastated upon meeting three Syrian orphan siblings in the war torn country and would have adopted all three if not for word of counsel by her partner, Brad Pitt who support her fully in her mission to help the less privileged but felt going from six to nine would be too demanding.
It is the second time this year that rumour is making rounds that Jolie and Pitt are adopting from Syria. We cannot wait. Although it could take at least another four to five months before Angelina and Brad’s children have another sibling due to legal proceedings.
