Jolie won't adopt kid from Haiti

London Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie won't be adopting a child from Haiti, but admits she and partner Brad Pitt have discussed expanding their family further. The actress, who is currently visiting earthquake-hit Haiti in her role as a UN Goodwill Ambassador, laughed off reports that she and partner Brad Pitt are planning to take on the care of an orphan from the disaster-stricken nation, reported contactmusic.com. "I'm always open to children around the world. We're that kind of a family; Brad and I talk about that. "But that's not what we're focusing on at this time, by any means. We're not here for that. We're here to see how we can help protect the children in country and scale up the needs here," she said. Angelina and Brad are already parents to three adopted children and three biological children. "New adoptions should definitely not be encouraged as an immediate response to the emergency. Haiti had many trafficking problems before the earthquake and now we must keep a very close watch on the children. I would encourage as much support as possible to groups like Unicef providing care for children in country," she added.
