Angelina May Visit Syria a Lot, but Don't Expect Her & Brad to Adopt a Baby

With so many heartbreaking stories about Syrians making the news, it's hard not to ask how to help. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been known for their philanthropic efforts and call to action -- but does that automatically mean Brad and Angie plan to adopt a Syrian refugee?


Just because something appears on the radar, doesn't make it true. Radar Online is reporting Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting ready to adopt a Syrian child.

Obviously, a move like this wouldn't be anything out of the ordinary for Brad and Angie -- considering three of their children are adopted (they also had three kids together). It's also not too far-fetched to think Angie's trips to the war-torn country didn't tug on her heartstrings. After all, she is a Special Envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees, which shows her dedication (Angie has over a decade in the game with the United Nations) to the cause.

But does this mean their brood will get a little bigger?

Honestly, I wouldn't rush to say yes. In fact, Brad and Angie's people reportedly confirmed to People they have no plans on adopting a Syrian child. On top of that, there are several challenges when it comes to adopting in Syria.

It seems like every time Angelina visits an impoverished nation, folks automatically assume she's going to come back with a child. Don't get me wrong, it is commendable if someone can adopt as many children in need as possible, but I don't think Brad and Angie plan to do this every so many years. Yes, they do have money, but that doesn't automatically make raising six children effortless. In case you forgot, Brad and Angie have Maddox (adopted from Cambodia), 14, Pax (adopted from Vietnam), 12, Zahara (adopted from Ethiopia), 10, Shiloh, 9, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 7.

Look, if they do end up adopting again, good for them. If not, that's their business.
