Angelina Jolie’s comments about Maddona have annoyed adoption advocates, because they think that she’s not one to talk. Angelina adopted two children, one from Cambodia and one from Africa and advocates say her adoption of Maddox ruined it for a lot of people wanting kids.
Angie apparently adopted Maddox through a group that was later charged with fraud. After this situation, adoption laws in Cambodia got even tougher and almost impossible.
Adoption advocate Tatiana Beams said, “Angelina is not a hero in the adoption community. She does nothing, or at least very little, to keep international adoption open and legal for American families and children.”
According to her Angie used a questionable agency to adopt Maddox and when the scandal went down, the Cambodian government shut the door on many familiest that were waiting for a child. She said, “She [Jolie] adopted Maddox under a questionable agency, where the directors went to prison. It would be nice to see her speak out on issues and policies surrounding international adoption.”
Oh leave everyone alone! Madonna, Angelina, everyone. They did a good thing and yes they probably didn’t do it the right way or made mistakes, but who gives a fig. Ask Maddox if he’d rather be carried around Robertson Blvd. or dodging land mines in his country and I’m sure he’d settle for the former.
PS – Is that Aniston in that pic above?
