Hey Bradjolina...about that adoption....

Jolie says they are ready to adopt another

Jolie said it's important to balance how their children perceive their family.

"You know, now the questions are more when you have a mixed-race family, do you balance the races so there's another African person in the house for Z? So there's another Asian person in the house for Mad? Shiloh has Brad and I she can look at," the actress said.

"What's best for the children as they grow? ... We don't just want to have different children from different countries. That's not the point," Jolie said.

How about adding a child with Down syndrome to the mix instead of the usual ethnic variations?

Many resources to be found, but better be quick, as the waiting list is a long one for our kids!

Wouldn't that be such a blessing to their beautiful family, but to add a child with Down syndrome.

Brad Pitt [and Belen, Reece's Mommy] and I all share the same birthday and year. Since two of already blessed with a child with Trisomy 21, I do believe Sir Brad should do the same........he would then be the luckiest guy in the world!

Here is a beautiful little girl named Faishiana, in Africa.

My friend in Belgium visits her orphanage once a year, and is very active in getting them support services.

Her link is on my "other blog reads" section.

I agree it would be marvelous if they expanded their family in such a way.

It is my secret dream that they adopt a child with T21. It would make it a popular thing to do and then others would follow and suddenly the world would be a better place.
