Angelina Jolie, often photographed with her two children in her arms, says she wants to adopt again.

"It's a very special thing," the 30-year-old actress told People magazine at the recent Worldwide Orphans Foundation benefit in Manhattan. "There's something about making a choice, waking up and traveling somewhere and finding your family."

Jolie has a 4-year-old son, Maddox, who was adopted from Cambodia, and a 9-month-old daughter, Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia.

"Most of the night I just thought about how quickly I want to adopt again," she said. "There are so many wonderful places. There are many parts of Asia, Africa, South America, so sooner or later I'll end up everywhere, I'm sure."

Jolie announced at the Oct. 24 benefit that she is joining with Dr. Jane Aronson, the foundation's founder, to build a pediatric AIDS center in Ethiopia.

"I know some of the kids that were next to my daughter (at the orphanage); two of them passed away, with symptoms very similar to hers," she told People. "I really do believe that if I didn't get her out at that time, that she wouldn't be here. She was days away."
Is Maddox old enough to understand what adoption means?


"We've always addressed it," said Jolie, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations. "I say, `You're from Asia, you're from Cambodia. Asia is not Mommy's continent, it's your continent.' ... He knows where Zahara came from. It's pretty amazing."

Jolie credits Aronson, her children's pediatrician, with saving Zahara's life. "It was really tough. You need this wonderful, calm doctor who tells you everything is going to be OK."

Time and time again, Angelina Jolie had proven to the world that she is an extra ordinary woman and I really admire her for that.

With her first movie, Girl Interrupted, I already noticed that this Hollywood royalty has a different style from the rest of the stars of her age in Hollywood. Not only she is a beauty with a sure -stamped acting prowess, there is an aura of intelligence that is projected whenever she communicates with either her body language or her spoken words.

And surely, I was not mistaken for she is now a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations. That is really something. And for her to give love to a child who is not her flesh and blood that much and considering him her very own is an act worthy of praise. For who among us can show much love to a child not our own?

Angelina Jolie opened the eyes of more people and couples who were considering adopting children from other countries. Through her act, more and more children for sure will be saved and will have foster parents who can give them that love they deserve.

It is also worth noting that Angelina Jolie redefined what family is. Family is not about blood relationship, but about love for one another.

And true, we can make a choice and find our own family.

So for Angelina Jolie, I salute you!!
