Angelina: I'll Be a Stay-at-Home Mom

Angelina: I'll Be a Stay-at-Home Mom

Angelina Jolie talked with Ho Chi Minh City’s Law newspaper:

“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. I am very proud and happy to be their mother. Photographs and press coverage will make him upset. I’m very worried about that. I would like to say I’m sorry for bringing this into Pax‘s life. Everyone would agree that children need to have a family. I have the ability to help children fulfill that desire. Why should I say no?”

    My thought is that she said those things as part of the application process. Of course, she needs to present herself in a way to show she will be able to take care of the child. It doesn’t help to tell the authority that she has films lined up to do.

    Also, as they had said that Vietneses law does not allow unmarried couple to adopt, it won’t help her application either, for her to bring Brad with her to pick up the child. She’s showing the authority that she’s a single mother, thus elegible to adopt. Why bring Brad along at this point to casue any complication.

    ps. By “application process”, I don’t mean just the filing out of papers and submitting them. The whole process ends, as I used the word, when the child is back in the U.S., after all the stamps and approvals have been obtained.

    They are just going about it the wrong way. I suspect it was the director of the Orphanage who spoke to US weekly. Pax (Sang at the time) name was given to the local media before Angie could take him into her care. Did you also notice that when she arrived at the Orphanage there were razzis inside the gated area and you can clearly see the director talking to the media. Its just not right. He is enjoying the attention too much from what we have seen of him soo far.

    The picture of him holding Pax in one arm and holding a camera in the other just kills me eveytime i see it. LOL

    I’m going to repost this Hugh Jackman quote for those who may have missed it.

    “We’re still trying to have our own children,” Jackman says. “But we’ve always known there’s a need for mixed-race adoption. What’s the point of queuing up for a blond, blue-eyed kid? Adoption, in the best sense of the word, means that regardless of physical or background traits, you’re willing to take on that child and assimilate him into your family and community.”

    ******************************’

    It’s true! What is the point of waiting in line for years, for a North American kid that everyone wants anyway?! It’s great when anyone adopts from anywhere, whether it’s here or abroad, but why wait in line (‘queud up’, like waiting for a book at the library) for years here, when millions of eligible, wonderful kids are dying every year internationaly?!

    Thanks for reposting this one. I love how much thought Angelina and Brad (maybe Maddox too) puts into their childrens names. It will make for great stories to tell when they are older.

  • susie

    Amaya- I’m so excited. Jammy is going to have a cyber-playmate. My mom just told me about a neighbor who has an extra 6 month old japanese chin chin and we are going to go get him. We agreed to name him Pax, isn’t that cute!!! I’m going to go see him soon and maybe bring him home too. :)

  • Lady G

    Thanks Jared.

    I don’t think Angie is saying she will never do films again but the children are her main focus at this time. Which as it should be.

    A lot moms take time off when there is a new addition to the family and once everything is okay go back to work in some form.

    Also, if anyone think Angie will give up her UN work them that’s just crazy. A W*O*M*A*N wears many hats and have been doing it since the beginning of time.

    well said lady g, i think women should be supportive of one another. the point is that a woman should have choices and that if at this time she chooses to stay with the kids is great. i agree that a real woman can do many things and she will still do just that.

    I agree and if Vietnamese government isn’t careful they will lose in the end. All these leaks will turn off potential clients that want to adopt.

    It’s sad how this is being carried out and how it will affect Pax and MZS too!

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Why is Angelina even still acting??

    She should just quit, not like she cares about Hollywood any ways, Her life seems a lot bigger than making films. Brad has a million projects lined up, both are super duper rich, it seems pointless.

    I cant see Ange being a stay home mom for to long, she’s a go-getter. [hustler]

    Angelina Jolie will come back to Vietnam (From Souljolie)

    Q: What do you think about Vietnam?

    - I’ve always loved your country since it is also part of the world. It feels like home during my visit to Southeast Asia. I’d love to visit Hanoi (capital of Vietnam) and take my children to the beaches. I’ve heard that Vietnam has many great beaches.

    Q: Why do you adopt children even though you have your own child (biologically)?

    - Ever since i was young, i’ve wanted to adopt children. Everyone would agree that children need to have a family. I have the ability to help children fulfill that desire. Why should I say no?

    Q: Your new adoption is currently under the spotlight. What problems will arise from the adoption of your son, Pax Thien Jolie?

    - I’m just concerned about the fact that Pax is only 3 years old and he has had to live in an orphanage during his childhood. Photographs and press coverage will make him upset. I’m very worried about that. I would like to say I’m sorry for bringing this into Pax’s life.

    Q: What has been going on with your life?

    - I’m taking some time off from acting and 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. I’m very proud and happy to be their mother.

    Q: Will you let Pax learn in Vietnamese or English?

    - At this time, he can only speak Vietnamese. Therefore, we’ll have to learn each other’s language. We will come back to Vietnam. I’ll try my best to learn more about your culture and see what i can help with.

    Q: Being a UN’s Good Will Ambassador, what do you wish for the world?

    - I wish the best for our children’s education system. Children will develop naturally having all their rights. We also have to repect different cultures in the world.

    I am so happy for the J-P that Angie could afford to be a stay-home mom for a while. She has nothing to prove anymore as an actress. She has got the highest awards, she has done drama, comedy, thrillers, animation, action movies. She has shot movies all over the world, has made friends with the most respected actors/actresses in the industry. It’s good to take time to enjoy her kids when they are at the cutest phase of life. There is nothing more endearing then seeing a little baby smiles at you when he/she wakes up in the morning. No money or fame can make up for those moments. Take time to enjoy them B&A. They grow up so fast. Congratulations on your new son.

  • Estelle

    Good morning everyone, JJ thank you for 4 new threads ( you’re ROCK).

    To #71. Angelina won’t stop acting. She got the acting bug from her Mom. It would be a shame to retire her versatile talent, and I’m sure acting in some way, it is a tribute to Marcheline. Plus she said that it funds her charity work.

  • Amy

    While I think it’s a very good thing that Angelina’s giving this boy a stable home and loving family, I still disagree with her decision of changing his name. I think that at three-years old, he would be already accustomed to responding to his designated name, and changing it would make it more confusing to him. It’s not necessarily a bad thing that she did, but it does make things a bit more difficult. If changing his name was essential, she probably should have Americanized it instead. As an Taiwanese-American, I have had my name changed at about that age, but only to make it more available in the English language. I mean, I know that Pax-Thien will grow over it, but still…
    Before y’all get on me for being a “hater” and whatnot, I’m not saying that she’s evil for doing that, just that I’m not sure that it’s the right decision for the child. I wish Pax-Thien happiness in his new home and family. I’m sure that Brad will enjoy and love this new addition to the clan despite his inability to be there at his welcome.
