Angelina Jolie is Adopting a Child From Haiti!

Posted by PZ on February 8th, 2011

Angelina Jolie is reportedly about to welcome a new child in to her family. Angelina and Brad already have 6 kids in total – 3 biological and 3 adopted, and now it looks as though Angelina is in the process of adopting a four-year-old girl from Haiti named Leah who lost her whole family after the earthquake in 2010. Angelina met Leah just a month after the tragedy, and it is expected that the girl will spend more time with Angelina before the adoption process is completed at the end of this year. A source spoke:

“Angelina’s lawyers are in the process of getting an authorisation so Leah can spend some time with her in America. That’s standard procedure, basically they need to make sure Leah will adapt well. A lot of observers from groups such as the Red Cross are ensuring that Angelina is treated like anybody else and not fast tracked, which would be viewed insidiously.”

According to the source, Angelina wants to complete the adoption even though there is some concern from Haiti officials:

“There is also a concern about the Haitian authorities not being able to deal with such international pressure. But for now, Angelina is almost reaching the final steps of the gruelling adoption process. If Leah fits well within her family in the States, she will be able to adopt her.”

If Angelina does adopt the child, this will be the 7th kid that the Jolie-Pitts have welcomed!
