ANGELINA JOLIE IS THIS MUCH CLOSER TO GETTING HER VIETNAMESE BABY.

It looks like Angelina Jolie will get her greazy little hands on the Vietnamese child she is hoping to adopt, very, very, soon. Reports say that her application is "being processed quickly," and Vu Duc Long, Director of Vietnam's International Adoption Department, said that the child should be added to Angie's global brood by the end of the month. Jolie is adopting a 3 1/2 year old boy, who was abandoned shortly after birth. The kid reportedly likes to play soccer (I'm sure one of Maddox's requirements for a baby brother) and is shy. For those of you who are annoyed that it looks like Jolie is getting a speedy adoption, Long said Jolie's is being processed more quickly because she has selected a boy at the Tam Binh Orphan Sponsor Center already. He added, "Moreover, a celebrated person is certainly treated a little bit different from others." Uh huh. Now Jolie and Pitt will have 4 kids, ages 5 and under. That's a lot of kids.

Jolie reportedly will receive a notice next month telling her she can get the child. After that, she has 3 months to pick him up. When she does, there reportedly will be a ceremony in HCM City where she will be given the boy. A ceremony?? I hope that is common practice.

UPDATE: Angelina and Maddox have arrived in Vietnam to pick up the little boy. That was fast! Very cute that Maddox went along to welcome his new kid brother. Read about it HERE.

It is a "Giving and Receiving" ceremony that all adoptive parents in Vietnam must go through.. it is really an uneventful event... nothing more than part of the process. And yes, "waiting children" referrals are processed much quicker for everyone, than infant referrals are.

Hey TW, I'm surprised at your ``greasy hands'' comment - it's not your usual style...let's hope the kid will see it as it is -being plucked from a less than perfect situation and given a chance at a better life by a couple who could spend their dough on Hollywood crap but choose family first....

Now she has another kid that will be used as a trophy and raised by nannies. How about raising the children you have before you decide to adopt more children like they are puppies at a humane society? I commend her for wanting to help unfortunate children, but SLOW DOWN!! Her "good intentions" are starting to look like a popularity contest.

You're reading too much into it. I just felt like writing "greazy little hands" because I like the expression. Other than that, I have nothing against what Angie is doing, as long as she raises those kids right. Although I do agree with 6:53.

i agree with 6:53, too. there is NO way she can raise 4 kids by herself when she and brad are ALWAYS working or going to Africa. NO WAY.

Is this kid really better off? Angie obviously collects children like some people collect stamps. I honestly doubt she loves these kids. In fact, I don't think she loves anyone but herself. I don't think that a loveless home, even if it be a milliondollar loveless home, is the place for a child. I would have been happier to see the child go to a family who really truly loved and cared for him
