Report: Angelina Jolie planning to adopt child from Syria
OK! magazine reports the actress filed adoption papers alone after visiting Syria with Brad Pitt.
Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie is planning to adopt a child from Syria, OK! magazine reported Wednesday.
The actress, who was recently in Syria with partner Brad Pitt to visit Iraqi refugees, has reportedly started the adoption process to bring home a baby girl.
Jolie already has six children, three of them biological and three adopted.
A spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service confirmed that "only Angelina's name was on the adoption papers," the British tabloid reported.
"It is clear that the Syrian people, no matter the challenges or difficulties they may face, have always shown generous hospitality to people in need," the magazine quoted Jolie as telling local news agency ChamPress during her October trip.
Jolie also reportedly said she hopes the world recognizes the plight of Iraqi refugees.
Jolie and Pitt reportedly met with Syrian President Bashar Assad and his wife, Asma, while in Syria.
Jolie, a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, has previously adopted children from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam.
