Angelina and Maddox arrived at the orphanage to pick up Pax, but he was apparently visibly upset on their arrival:
Theytried to make friends with the Vietnamese boy, who cried when he sawthem because for him, they are strangers. Jolie was very moved. Both ofthem tried to comfort the boy.
Angelina hasapparently completed procedures with Vietnamese authorities to adopt,but now must be granted approval from the U.S. consular and embassyofficials.
Angelina and Brad already have three children of multinational origin: Maddox Chivan, 5, was adopted from Cambodia in 2001, Zahara Marley, 2, from Ethiopia in 2005, and they welcomed Shiloh Nouvel, 10 months, in Namibia last year. Pax was born in November 2003.
