Jolie and Pitt are claimed to be in the final stages of the adoption process, following an emotional meeting with Syrian brothers whose father was kidnapped by local soldiers and mother was killed in what is being described as a “bombing incident”. Three of Angelina and Brad’s six children together are adopted – sons Maddox and Pax from Cambodia and Vietnam, and eldest daughter Zahara from Ethopia.
Angelina, having gone six times to Syrian refugee camps already, isn’t taking any of this.
The news of Brad Pit, 51, and Angelina’s plans to adopt a Syrian orphan first surfaced in April of this year, however, the process has been slower than predicted.
But following a recent trip to Syria in her capacity as United Nations ambassador, Angelina is said to have decided to once again extend her “rainbow family” by adopting a refuguee.
“Angie didn’t put up a fight”. An insider says the middle child “could speak some English”, while the oldest “was very quiet, but never left Angie’s side during the visit”.
Being the kind-hearted maternal figure she is, the actress wanted to take all three with her, but Brad thought differently and wanted just one. “But they compromised at adopting one”.
“Going from six children to nine was just way too much, and Brad was concerned about how it would impact their other kids”, said the source.

It is reported that Brad and Angelina are both very busy but have cleared their schedules to allow time to adopt.
Brad Pitt’s rep previously denied that they are planning to adopt a child in Syria.
Red tape, however, will keep the child from arriving in the USA for another 4-5 months, the source added.
