Brad Pitt: “Adoption Saved My Daughter”

Brad Pitt is convinced his eldest daughter with Angelina Jolie would certainly have died if she had not been adopted from Africa by the Hollywood couple.

The actor and his partner are parents to six children – three biological kids and three who were adopted from various countries around the world.

The couple adopted Zahara, now six, from an orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2005 when she was just six months old, and Pitt is convinced the youngster would not have survived if they had not taken her in.

Pitt explained: “I have seen children suffer far beyond what we experience in America – like our oldest daughter. I know she would not be alive (if she had not been adopted). I know what care was available to her, and it was nil. I cannot imagine life without her.”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: True Humanitarians

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie opened their own Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation in 2003 to help those in need and to help save our planet.

They donated $1 million to refugees in Pakistan in June. According to tax records, in 2006 alone they donated $8 million to charities. They are true super heroes of the modern world!

Some causes they support include: adoption, AIDS, at risk youth, cancer, disaster relief, the environment, fair trade, homelessness, human rights, missing children, and poverty.

They are great supporters of many charities and the list of charities is always growing.

A few of their charities that they support are: Afghanistan Relief, African Children’s Choir, Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Canada, Cure Autism Now, Global Action for Children, Human Rights Watch, plus many more.

Thank you to this couple – today’s modern super heroes – that Passes It On and helps others!

Willing to Adopt More…

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are raising 6 kids – 3 adopted and the rest 3 are biological. Maddox, who is eight year old was adopted from Cambodia, Pax, five, from Vietnam and Zahara, four, from Ethiopia. Their three biological children are two year old Shiloh and eight-month-old twins Vivienne and Knox. Pitt and Jolie have always shown their willingness to adopt more children. Pitt was quoted joking that the couple were already “overdue” another child. “We average about two a year, so I guess we’re overdue, aren’t we?”.

Angelina Jolie’s adoption consultant, Dr. Ronald Federici, could not be reached for comment.
