Angelina and Brad 'finalise plans to adopt Syrian orphan'

Hollywood couple want to complete adoption this year

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Finalize Plans to Adopt Syrian Orphan

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly finalising plans to adopt a Syrian orphan, bringing their famous brood of children from six to seven.

The famous couple are said to be keen to complete the adoption this year.

The Hollywood actress reportedly met up with three Syrian brothers who were orphaned after their father was taken away by soldiers and their mother killed in a bombing incident, reports the Daily Mail.

The 38-year-old, who is a UN Special Envoy for Refugee, is said to have wanted to adopt all three children, but Brad allegedly said it would be hard for their children to adjust to the sudden change in family dynamics.

Expanding family

Angelina and Brad are already parents to six children, three biological including Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and three adopted, Maddox, 13, from Cambodia, Pax, 11, from Vietnam, and Ethiopian Zahara, 10.

Last month, Angelina - who married Pitt in the summer of 2014 - revealed that she could not biologically have children again as she had her ovaries removed.

As special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina has made more than six visits to Syrian refugee camps and has been an eyewitness to the atrocities happening in that sphere of the world.

At least 70,000 children have lost their fathers and another 3,700 more have lost both parents who were either feeling civil war, thrown in prison or killed.

Angelina implored the world 'to save a generation of traumatised, isolated and suffering Syrian children from catastrophe' during a speech in November 2013.
