Actress Angelina Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt are reportedly in the process of adopting a little girl named Leah, 4, who lost her family during the Haiti earthquake in 2010.
Jolie, who has three adopted children, Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, and Zahara, six, and biological children Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne , met the young girl in February 2010.
Lea is expected to visit Angelina and Brad and their other children before the adoption is authorized.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Angelina’s lawyers are in the process of getting an authorization so Leah can spend some time with her in America. That’s standard procedure, basically they need to make sure Leah will adapt well.
“A lot of observers from groups such as the Red Cross are ensuring that Angelina is treated like anybody else and not fast tracked, which would be viewed insidiously.”
Angelina, 35, is ready to get through the final steps of the adoption.
The source adds, “There is also a concern about the Haitian authorities not being able to deal with such international pressure. But for now, Angelina is almost reaching the final steps of the grueling adoption process.
“If Leah fits well within her family in the States, she will be able to adopt her.”
