Angelina Jolie to adopt from Haiti

Angelina Jolie is reportedly set to adopt a fourth child.

The 'Tourist' actress wants to open up her and partner Brad Pitt's home to a four-year-old girl called Leah who lost her entire family in the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010.

Angelina - who already has three adopted children, Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, and Zahara, six, and naturally conceived Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - first met the child in February 2010, a month after the natural disaster, and the child is expected to go visit her and Brad and their other children before the adoption is authorised in the latter stages of this year.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Angelina's lawyers are in the process of getting an authorisation so Leah can spend some time with her in America. That's standard procedure, basically they need to make sure Leah will adapt well.

"A lot of observers from groups such as the Red Cross are ensuring that Angelina is treated like anybody else and not fast tracked, which would be viewed insidiously."

There are worries adoption authorities in the small Caribbean nation may not be able to cope with the massive interest in Angelina's plans, but the 35-year-old screen star determined to get through the "final steps" to adopt Leah.

The source added: "There is also a concern about the Haitian authorities not being able to deal with such international pressure. But for now, Angelina is almost reaching the final steps of the gruelling adoption process.

"If Leah fits well within her family in the States, she will be able to adopt her."
