Angelina plans to adopt again for many reasons

10/27/2005 at 12:00 PM ET

Actress Angelina Jolie wants to be a mother to more than just her two children , Maddox and Zahara, for more reasons than one.

"I personally am not willing to wait any longer for action by the United States or any government while children are suffering and dying," she said.

"I know some of the kids that were next to my daughter; two of them passed away, with symptoms very similar to hers. I really do believe that if I didn’t get her out at that time, that she wouldn’t be here. She was days away."

There are many places that Angelina is considering when choosing her next adopted child.

"There are so many wonderful places. There are many parts of Asia, Africa, South America, so sooner or later I’ll end up everywhere, I’m sure," she said.

No matter where she adopts from, Angelina does plan on extending her family.

"Most of the night I just thought about how quickly I want to adopt again," she said. " It’s a very special thing. There’s something about making a choice, waking up and traveling somewhere and finding your family."

Does anyone know statistics of how many poor and starving orphans live in the US?

As someone who is waiting to bring home my first child through the miracle of adoption (international at that), I am so happy for Angelina Jolie and the blessings that these little ones bring to her as much as she does to them.
Just a side note – adoption is like finding a great pair of jeans in that it is not one size fits all – domestic adoption is not meant for everyone just as international adoption is not meant for everyone. I don’t wish to start a debate. I just wanted to point out a small detail.
Many many happy thoughts to the Jolie family as they embark on their futures!

There are many older children in the foster care system in the US who have not been adopted for a plethura of reasons. Babies are adopted very quickly. We have a pretty good saftey net in this country, so there shouldn’t be any starving children unless they are being neglected by an adult. Angelina seems like a wonderful human being. A great mom, too, I’ll bet.

Im glad to hear that she wants to adopt more. I think she’s an amazing woman, and has definitally given those two children a loving home.

If thats what you think eurochild, at least provide reasons as to why you think that.
