Enquiring minds want to know!!! Is Angelina Jolie becoming an adoptee collector? Just like the many pet collectors across the country. Only she collects children from all over the country. I wonder if she will ever adopt in the United States. She criticized Madonna for her adoption. Yet here she is doing something questionable herself. Isn't that calling kettle black? This woman used to be a favorite actress. Now I find a disgusting adoptee collector. I guess America's needy children aren't good enough for her. How many will she collect?

Hanoi, Vietnam (BANG) - Angelina Jolie may be trying to do the right thing, but as tends to be the case with celebrity adoption, controvery is bound to arise.
Angelina's adoption of a Vietnamese boy is said to contravene the country's laws.
The "Good Shepherd" star filed papers with Vietnamese and U.S. officials to become the child's guardian as a single parent last week.
Under Vietnamese law, single parents who are co-habiting cannot adopt.
International adoption official Tatiana Beams said, "This is a clear contradiction of Vietnamese law, and such situations would not be allowed for other couples. Most co-habiting couples who try to adopt as a single parent are either turned away from agencies or face difficulties."
The U.S. department dealing with the matter insists it abides by Vietnamese rules when it comes to adopting from the country, but has not opposed Angelina's action.
The 31-year-old star filed for adoption as a single parent, even though her boyfriend, Brad Pitt, has become the adoptive father of her five-year-old Cambodian son Maddox and two-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara.
The family, who also have a ten-month-old biological daughter Shiloh together, live in New Orleans.
