Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Are Convinced Zahara Would Be DEAD By Now If They Hadn't Adopted Her!

Zahara was just six months old when the couple found her in an orphanage in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa in 2005.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were so shocked by the squalor Zahara was living in, they immediately knew adopting would save her from a certain death!

“I have seen children suffer far beyond what we experience in America – like our oldest daughter,” Brad tells Parade magazine.

Zahara, now 6, is Brad and Angelina’s eldest daughter. They have also adopted 10-year-old Maddox, from Cambodia and Pax, 7, from Vietman. Their biological children are Shiloh, 5, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Zahara has flourished into a beautiful, healthy girl in the Jolie-Pitts‘ care. But it hasn’t always been that way.

Brad adds, “I know she would not be alive (if she had not been adopted). I know what care was available to her, and it was nil. I cannot imagine life without her.”

How terrifying. Thank God they found her!

Do stories like this tempt you to consider adoption, HollyMoms?
