Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt drop adoption plan

The couple had originally planned to adopt a kid from India.

November 7, 2006

Weeks after the high profile adoption news got splashed all over the media, Hollywood star couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have backed out of their plans. They have abandoned their plans to adopt an Indian baby. The reason: The controversy surrounding Madonna's recent adoption.

The Hollywood couple - who have a baby daughter Shiloh and two adopted children, five-year-old son Maddox, who is Cambodian, and Ethiopian daughter Zahara, who is 22-months-old - planned to give a home to an Indian orphan. However, the plan has ended as a non starter after being put off by the criticism material girl Madonna came at receiving end for adopting a 13-month-old Malawian boy.

The Brangelina couple does not want to be dragged through the sufferings and ridicule that Madonna was subjected to. Hence the decision.

Sources close to actor couple said that when people start questioning the legality of adoption, of whether they would be able to keep the child, it gets into a territory that's just heartbreaking. 

The star couple are currently in India, shooting for A Mighty Heart, based on the life of slain journalist Danielle Pearl .

The couple had originally hoped to be able to bring the child home before Christmas, and had even thought of naming the kid Indiaas a tribute to its motherland. Angelina has been quoted as saying that “I believe I'm meant to find my children in the world and not necessarily have them genetically.” Similarly, Brad Pitt too had made public his desire to have at least six children, enough to make a mini-soccer team.

However, the plans have gone awry, and finally dropped thanks to the row over Madonna’s adopted kid.
