Pax Thien Jolie's Passport Photo

Pax Thien Jolie's Passport Photo

This is the passport photo of Angelina Jolie‘s newly adopted 3-year-old son Pax Thien Jolie (born Truong Quang Sang) that was attached to the passport application filed at the immigration office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on Friday. The very first photos of Pax were posted here.

Angelina and Pax (along with Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh) will fly home to Los Angeles after Pax‘s passport and visa have been finalized.

Lao Dong (Labor) newspaper reports that when Angelina and Pax first met, she quickly embraced him and told him in Vietnamese “Khong sao dau, khong sao dau” (No problem, no problem) and immediately started playing with him.

Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reports that Pax can count from 1 to 10 in English and his favorite foods include fried noodles and yogurt.

The adoption agency that Angelina used issued the following response to clear up rumors regarding Pax‘s adoption.

“In applying to adopt 3-yr-old Pax Thien, Ms. Jolie followed the same course as all prospective adoptive parents who apply to our Vietnam program. Throughout her adoption process, which began in the summer of 2006, she has received no preferential treatment from the Vietnamese government or Adoptions From The Heart, and contrary to earlier reports, her application was not fast tracked.

Despite rumors that she chose her child, Ms. Jolie received a referral, just like any other parent adopting from Vietnam. In late 2006, she was referred a child who had been legally determined to be available for adoption and who fit within the parameters for which she had been approved to adopt. She accepted the first and only referral given to her.

In addition, we can confirm the statement given by Nguyen Van Trung, Director of Tam Binh Orphanage, that Ms. Jolie has neither made, nor promised to make, any financial contributions to his orphanage. Adoptions From The Heart celebrates the miracle of adoption with the Jolie-Pitt family, as we do with all of our clients, and wish them much joy.”

Heidi Gonzalez, Vietnam Adoption Coordinator for Adoptions From The Heart

    Sarah, when running your own company, you can’t just pick up and leave whenever you want to. Brad has taken almost two weeks off from filming when Marchelin passed away. Don’t forget the two girls (shiloh and Z), at least one parent needs to stay with them. It’s true, you can’t always take the little ones on long trips. Plus, Angie is not going to be in Vietnam for long. She’s probably on the way home now as we speak. I am sure of it Brad want so much to go with Angie to welcome Pax home, but there are other priorities at times and depending on circumstance (s).

    I am sure Brad can’t wait to see them home and welcome Pax!:)

    I’m just curious. Why did they say that Brad couldn’t make it because he was under contract to work when there was no Benjamin Button shoot on Wednesday and yesterday(and as far as I know, there’s no shoot today)? He was photographed coming out of Scott brothers’ office where he spent an hour or two yesterday. That could be considered as work but certainly something he could get out of.

    How do you know there was no shooting?

    Vietnamese orphanage, superstar Jolie just an ordinary gal
    The Associated PressPublished: March 15, 2007

    HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam: When Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt showed up at a Vietnamese orphanage last fall, most of the staff had no idea they were Hollywood superstars.

    “They looked very much like ordinary people,” said Bui Thi Bich Tuyen, a nurse at the Tam Binh orphanage where Jolie adopted the newest member of her family, 3-year-old Pax Thien Jolie, on Thursday.

    “We thought that they were just an ordinary couple that wanted to play with the kids and give them presents,” Tuyen said. “They brought lots of toys.”

    Jolie shared crayons and drew pictures with the kids. “We could already see that she had a heart for children,” said Tuyen, the nurse who had been in charge of raising Pax ever since he was brought to the orphanage as an infant.

    “His Vietnamese name was Truong Quang Sang, but we just called him Sang,” Tuyen said. “He is a very lively boy, but sometimes when he met strangers he would become shy and often cried.”

    Tuyen said Pax was of average size for a Vietnamese child his age — 92 centimeters (3 feet) tall and 14.5 kilometers (32 pounds).

    “He is just a little boy, so I don’t think he understand the big change that has come into his life,” Tuyen said. “He is very lucky to be adopted by a famous star.”

    About 350 children live at the Tam Binh orphanage on the outskirts of Vietnam’s booming southern business hub, Ho Chi Minh City.

    Pax shared a room with about 25 of them, where they slept in two rows of beds in a 30-square-meter (320 square-foot) room.

    Now he is staying in a Ho Chi Minh City luxury hotel with his mother and his new brother, 5-year-old Maddox, whom Jolie adopted in neighboring Cambodia.

    It was not known how long Jolie would be in Vietnam, although one of her representatives said Thursday that she would probably stay until sometime next week.

    In an interview in Friday’s Ho Chi Minh City Law newspaper — published by the city’s justice department, where the adoption ceremony took place Thursday — Jolie said she hoped also to take her children to the capital, Hanoi, and to a Vietnamese beach.

    Asked about the media attention generated by the adoption, she was quoted as saying, “Photographs and press coverage will make him (Pax) upset. I’m very worried about that. I would like to say I’m sorry for bringing this into Pax’s life.”

    “I’m not making any movies right now,” Jolie said in the interview. “I will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life. I have four children, and caring for them is the most important thing for me at the moment.”

    U.S. officials must issue a visa before Pax can travel with his mother to the United States. Visas are usually issued in Hanoi, about two hours north of Ho Chi Minh City by plane.

    In addition to brother Maddox, Pax’s other new siblings are 2-year-old Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia; and another sister, Shiloh, born to Jolie and Pitt in May.

    Pitt did not travel to Vietnam with Jolie this week. She filed the adoption papers herself because the couple are not married.

    Like Tuyen, orphanage vice director Ho Thi Kim Thoa had no idea who the superstars were when they first turned up at Tam Binh during a surprise visit last Thanksgiving.

    “We did not realize that they are famous movie stars until the next day, when we saw their photos in the papers,” Thoa said.

    Another orphanage staffer, who identified herself only as Yen, said she was also surprised to learn she had crossed paths with Hollywood stars.

    “I wish I had known,” Yen said. “I would have brought a camera with me and had my picture taken.”

    Its great that the US adoption agency came out and said what needed to be said – that:

    (a) Angelina applied in summer 06;
    (b) she didn’t pick a beautiful child but took the first and only one shown to her.

    Now, I do think Pax is a beautiful child, just like all children. Even the little one who had to be tied to a pole so he won’t run away and who won’t speak in the refugee camp in Darfur.

    Angelina’s adoption agency has now stated that all was done according to the rules and no preferential treatment was given to Angelina. Advocates should never shoot their mouths off first without checking their facts and doing their homework. I don’t believe Tatiana BEams is a hero in the adoptive community hahahahahahahah.

    It’s sad and a shame that you can’t legislate against stupidity.

    Rotflmao….now, that will be a huge accomplishment. On the other hand, how would amuse ourselves, if we don’t have stupid posts to make fun of?
