I always like to know what the stars that I admire are up to. http://www.celebrity-gossip.net/celebrities/hollywood/angelina-jolie-the-un-ambassador-200271/ Angelina Jolie has always had to face skeptics who have considered her attempts to help the third world as nothing more than a celebrity stunt. As an official ambassador to the United Nations, Angelina Jolie speaks out to Newsweek about her difficult trips to African refugee camps. Angelina is due to bring home her adopted Vietnamese son http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070313/ENTERTAIN/70313005 By Associated Press March 13, 2007 Angelina Jolie’s adoption application is being processed quickly and she could pick up her new 3 1/2-year-old son within a few weeks, Vietnam’s top adoption official said Tuesday. Officials in Ho Chi Minh City are reviewing Jolie’s file and should complete their work by the end of the month at the latest, said Vu Duc Long, director of Vietnam’s International Adoption Department. Jolie can pick up the child anytime after the application is approved, he said. The child was abandoned at a Ho Chi Minh City hospital as a baby and then taken to the nearby Tam Binh orphanage, where he has lived ever since, said Nguyen Van Trung, the orphanage director. Shortly after he arrived at the orphanage, the Tam Binh staff tried unsuccessfully to locate the boy’s birth parents. more here http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070313/ENTERTAIN/70313005 Well done Angelina, wonder what Brad is up to???
