Pax Thien Jolie's Adoption Papers

Pax Thien Jolie's Adoption Papers

Here are the adoptions papers that Angelina Jolie filed with authorities in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in order to gain custody of 3-year-old son Pax Thien Jolie. The adoption agency Angelina used also issued this statement following the adoption of Pax.

Bui Thi Bich Tuyen, a nurse from Tam Binh Orphanage where Angelina adopted Pax said staff there didn’t realize she and Brad Pitt were celebrities when they first visited last year during ThanksgivingAngelina shared crayons and drew pictures with the kids.

Said Tuyen, “They looked very much like ordinary people. We thought that they were just an ordinary couple that wanted to play with the kids and give them presents. They brought lots of toys. We could already see that she had a heart for children.”

    “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

  • Another Old Time Regular Lurker

    It is so disconcerting to see these documents being paraded to the public. I really do not understand how and why these confidential informations are being leaked. At TMZ, they also got a copy of Angelina’s passport, which made me really upset…..

    Congratulations to the Jolie-Pitt family. Pax will make a great brother to Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh. More good things will come to this family without a doubt…..

  • please

    When are they coming home?

  • Websurfer

    Geez – the Vietnamese officials are selling everything including the kitchen sink….

    Oh well! Nice to see everything is legal though!

    I know what you mean. And it’s not like Vietnam is held to the Freedom of Information Act either. This is getting tacky and very invasive.

  • Juno

    Yeah, this is overkill. I am sure the JP’s do not appreciate this exposure. Especially when this info should be confidential. Pictures are fine. But Visas/documentation. Naaahh…. I’ll be posting in the other threads.

  • please

    Info was released by the director of the orphanage.

    It already is. While the Pax pics made me uncomfortable, since the press is clearly trying to tell his story based on a few pics, posting passports and adoption papers seem really wrong. Angelina and Pax are entitled to privacy.

    I thought it was cool to have a bunch of Angelina/Pax threads, but if the genesis of the threads are private documents, then it not so great. JMO…

  • Websurfer

    I have to agree with Juno. I stop here! Thanks, JJ and Audrey for your efforts, though!


  • JoliePitt

    Wow! New thread. I can’t keep up with JJ :) But, do keep up the good work though JJ.

    I am sure money$ was involved. This is insane that the Vietnamese Orphanage is SELLING personal information of Angie to the media. It’s such intrusive, especially with adoption documents and passport. I agreed as and I am sure the Jolie-Pitt family don’t appreciate it. I wish there is a way where the Jolie-Pitt can put an end to this with the selling of their private personal information by orphanage?

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    all this P-ax is making me dizzy.

  • please

    If other sites have the documents, I’ll prefer to see them from JJ site where the JPs fans are. US weelky has them already.

  • jjoy

    that trout truong has a very big mouth…..he’s the best VN famewhore….why not just give all the documents of this adoption to the paps….the VN govt should just muffle that mofo and his cronies….they talk too much!!! shame shame on them…’s like WTF they are thinking….

  • Shame

    What a shame. The Vietnamese are destroying their own reputations with all these leakage of information.

  • eee

    Too much Informations from the Orphanage.

  • bdj

    Thanks for all the new threads Just Jared. I wish AJ, Maddox and Pax a safe trip home. Thanks for the link and information about Saint John posted in another thread. I was glad to read that AJ is a board member and the company is doing well. Her Golden Globes dress was certainly a hit. Best wishes to BAMPZS. I hope I got that right.

  • PinkRose

    THIS IS SO INTRUSIVE. Being a celebrity does not mean one’s private legal papers should be plastered on the internet for no reason. This is persona and private. For the rest of his life this little boy’s birth/adoption papers will be available to any Tom dick or Harry – enemies and friends. What’s become of our society?

    I didn’t need to see this and any well-thinking person, no matter how much they admire Brad and Angie should agree that this is going too far. What is this thing of rushing to spread what isn’t even news. Printing celebrity babies’ birth certificate is not necessary. WHAT’S NEXT????!!!!

    Already Angelina is apologizing publicly to her son for the intrusion into his life and the circus his life has become. My God…where are our feelings of decency and respect for one another???!!!We have to draw the line somewhere. I love BAMPSZ but I do not need to know every personal detail iof their lives. Even before their parents uncles and aunties see his papers, I have. Nothing is sacred anymore!

    man, i feel sorry for the jolie-pitt with their personal information floating on the internet. THIS IS SHAMEFUL AND JUST WRONG!!!! The Vietnamese officials are sure destroying their reputations. I just wish there’s a way to stop the Vietnamese officials from selling their private information………………pictures is one thing, but if my personal information is sold and floating on the internet, i’d be pissed and will sue their butts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the photo of Pax. He has sadness in his eyes but we know the family will soon change that look of sadness to a look of joy, happiness and love.

    Good luck to the Jolie-Pitts…they ALL deserve it, especially the little ones!!!!

  • PinkRose

    And who are these publicity-hungry orphanage executives in Vietnam who keep feeding Angelina’s private business to the media? JJ can have a new thread every six hours because these idiots will not zip their lips and show some professionalism. Even if it is not a sealed document, there is no reason to feed the media frenzy. Keep it out of the public domain for a while and everyone will lose interest. They won’t even attempt to get a copy after a while. The Jolie-Pitts want to be as ordinary a family as possible and the media is making that impossible but making them so extra-ordinary.

  • Gussie

    The information is not only coming from the orphanage but also – the official papers – from the Ministry of Justice.

    Vietnam is a communist country. The wildest forms of capitalism always seem to happen with the downfall of the state dominated economies.

    Russia sells plutonium, Vietnam private papers.
    To each according to its resources.

    There is nothing left for them to sell to the press, they alredy gave angelina’s passport, pax passport, the adoption papers, thank you note, the only thing left is the hotel bill!


    I’m home sick from work today, bored, so i have been following these “threads”.
    Rather entertaining, but my god, you people are obsessed with this woman!

  • Greedy

    The amount of money they get for selling these information is not worth the bad will the country will be getting for this scandalous act. The Vietnamese government should put on their thinking cap and put a stop to it.

  • bluemoon

    Too many threads at the same time, in which one are we staying?

  • PinkRose

    I’m so ticked at the overwhelming greed and insanity of the media that I can’t stop typing. Even the so-called high-brow papers are getting into the frenzy of celebrity-chasing, because if they don’t they will be left behind in the maoney-making . They cannot stick to their original mission statement and organization profile. Oh no, everyone is lowering their standards in every area of life to keep up. What is the popular culture coming to?

    You can’t say state your personal opinion about anything these days without adding “Not that there is anything wrong with it.” Even if you don’t believe it. You have to state it to prevent everyone else fron jumping down your theroat.

    Who is going to stand up for ol-fashioned values? Not all our standards have to be lowered, lower than a snake’s belly. Some of us have to stand up for a few of the old-fashioned values our parents and grandparents taught us.
    Give the Jolie-Pitts some privacy you all!! They are not circus monkeys. They need privacy too!!
