Is Angelina Jolie a Hypocrite?
United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, Angelina Jolie is at odds with her efforts to help children. The A-lister who is known for rescuing orphans from third world countries has spoken out for the first time about how it is in fact better to leave kids in their own countries.
"An emergency is not the time for new adoptions in any way." Earth-quake hit Haiti has left many children homeless and without parents and Angie is more concerned with relief efforts for the country and urges' others to think the same. "As an adoptive parent, I understand the urge to assist in that way. But people need to not get frustrated but really work with the country."
Adoptive mother to three kids, Maddox, eight, from Cambodia, Pax, six, from Vietnam, and five-year-old Zahara from Ethiopia is trying to draw attention to much deeper issues within the country. "Child trafficking has been a huge problem for a very long time. Everybody that means well needs to really take that very seriously."
And while Angie didn't say she wouldn't adopt now her plans for the future are still unknown.
