    @QQQQ: Good morning 4Q, and all JP fans. Angle is still on the job garnering positive press for those displaced men, women and children. I’m guessing tomorrow will be her last day.
    I read your post saying Angie is no longer a frontrunner for Gertrude Bell. I’m guessing she is going to rest and fill her time with another project. :-)
    I’m praying for everyone in danger. Hope cooler heads come together and bring some peace in the region.

    It would be great if she is pregnant, sure would be a beautiful baby like its three siblings.

    If I may correct, the baby would be a beautiful baby like his/her SIX siblings. My niece comes to us through adoption, (open adoption-a wonderful thing) and we are awaiting the arrival of her sister in November, the same way. Brad and Angie’s kids are brothers and sisters, stop leaving the older 3 out please! They ALL are beautiful!

    The firm helped advocacy group Kids in Need of Defense streamline operations.

    By Wendy Young and Allegra RichAll Articles

    Law Technology News

    September 17, 2012

    Every day, dozens of unaccompanied children enter the labyrinth that is the U.S. immigration system. Some come with family members (or friends) who are not their parents or legal guardians; some are brought by gangs, smugglers, or human traffickers; some cross the border alone. Whatever the reason, once children are in the system, they are truly abandoned — there is no right to counsel in immigration proceedings.

    Enter Kids in Need of Defense. In 2008, Microsoft Corp. and actress/humanitarian Angelina Jolie founded KIND to help unaccompanied children navigate the U.S. immigration system. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., it now has seven field offices and one affiliate across the country. In just a few short years, it has served more than 4,000 children.

    In each field office, KIND staff screens unaccompanied immigrant children for eligibility for services; trains volunteer lawyers; and places the children’s cases with volunteer attorneys. KIND also mentors the participating lawyers through all phases of the cases. In its first year, KIND worked with about 50 law firms; today, 125 major law firms and 10 corporate legal departments participate.

    But in 2010, KIND did not have standard practices in place and was not operating consistently or efficiently. That August, Seyfarth Shaw, honored KIND at a gala celebrating the 15th anniversary of its Houston office. Seyfarth has 800 attorneys located in 10 U.S. offices. Leaders from Seyfarth and KIND met to discuss ways that Seyfarth could support the group, and shortly thereafter, the firm took on the challenge of helping KIND streamline its operations. It committed to a yearlong project where the firm would use its “SeyfarthLean” methodology and technology to achieve this goal.

    @getalife:

    Why don’t you go there and get the ball started. YOU put you actions where you mouth is. but that would mean you would have to get you judgmentalass off the computer and actually GET A LIFE and do something yourself.
    How sad that there are people like you that do nothing but crap on someone that is doing something. It’s easy to do that on a computer. Now run along and get that airline ticket. Let us know about the situation from the ground. When you get back then talk about what Angie (sould) do.. oops.. see how easy it is.

    I made an observation based on what I’m seeing. She looks beautifully radiant but I don’t think she’s pregnant and if she is or not, Angelina is much more than a baby-making machine.

    @well:

    I don’t think she meant to exclude Maddox, Pax & Zahara from the family unit, just that if Angelina is pregnant, this one would look just like the other three genetic look-alikes. Of course, all SIX of the Jolie-Pitt children are beautiful. Three of them just happen to all look like each other more than the others do. That’s just my interpretation, though, and maybe I’m wrong, but I didn’t get the impression she meant to offend.

    As cute as Shiloh & Vivienne are, Zahara is going to be absolutely knock-out gorgeous when she’s grown. Maddox & Pax better start practicing their “older brother interviews of hopeful boyfriends”, lol!

  • EW

    I don’t think she is pregnant, it is just some material makes boobs look big. Remember when Angie and kids visited Brad in nola when he was filming KTS, the family walked together to a market nearby, Angie boobs looked huge, we all thought she was pregnant.

    I wonder which one of the four year old jolie pitt can swim cross a pool, Viv or Knox?

  • anustin

    duh!! its better to double or tripple the post than seeing those trollz post!!!

  • Rose

    @QQQQ: Hi 4Q, I’m just going to put my two cents in the speculation re Angie’s boobs. Most of the fans mentioning booby is saying so because they feel happy if she is preggers. We remember Brad and Angie saying they want to have between 7 to 14 children. We know they now have six, so fans are excited if there is another one in any form is coming to the family. No one of us know if they changed their minds about wanting more. the last time they mentioned having more children, they did not closed the door to another child. So IMO, fans would be happy if she is. I know I would be happy to see another Jolie Pitt, and I’m not wanting to be in her womb. This should be fun to speculate on something that is a blessing. Fans know that Angie is not flat chested, so as PT say, it’s maybe the bra. Whatever it is, her boobs was noticeable and she carries her early preg. In her boobs. At least no one is saying she is fat and out of shape.
    we love Angie with six or sixteen children, jmo. Now, don’t kill me for stating my opinion, now I’m going to run and hide :-),

  • anustin

    @Rose: I’m happy I did not lose my head. However, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I accept the red thumbs down. We can’t win them all. I still would be happy for Angie and Brad. :-)

    Where in the world is Angelina Jolie?

    By Alison Maxwell, USA TODAY
    Updated 11m ago

    Football watching and frolicking in the fall weather on Saturday is for mortals.

    For Angelina Jolie, Saturday is all business.

    She took a trip to Baghdad to meet with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari. As a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Jolie advocates for refugees around the world. On Friday, she told the Associated Press that with winter approaching, she’s concerned about the plight of hundreds of thousands of Syrians forced to flee their homes.

    Later Saturday, Jolie planned to fly to Irbil to meet Kurdish officials and will visit a Syrian refugee camp. According to CNN, Jolie has recently visited refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan to highlight suffering and the need for international humanitarian assistance.

    @Rose:

    My comment had nothing to do with how many times Angelina has been pregnant. She and Brad can have as many babies as they want to have, and I will be over the moon happy for them every time. But some people want her to be home and pregnant all the time, and to me she’s much more than that. It’s all I meant. Not every differing opinion between fans is wrong or an insult to Angelina.

    Who comes to a thread you said so yourself you hate so much? Oh that’s right, only a LOON with a pathetic life and WE ALL KNOW you are a paid troll. I guess Huvsie is stuck with a loser jenHO fan willing to earn a penny/day. LOL
