Word is out. Vu Duc Long, director of the Ministry of Justice’s International Adoption Department has confirmed that Angelina Jolie has filed the papers to adopt a little boy. This time she has set her sights on a Vietnamese child living in an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City. She saw the child during a visit she made last year with Brad Pitt.
Officials say that the adoption will be handled just like any other request. No special treatment will be given to the actress simply because of her fame. The process normally takes four months though they acknowledge that it may be shortened by the fact that Jolie has already found the child that she wishes to adopt.
This will bring the total of Jolie’s kids to four, two of whom are adopted. One is from Cambodia and the other from Ethiopia. One wonders how many more she plans to add before she will decide that her family is big enough.
