Gold Baby Ring, Could Baby Ring Cost Actress Her Child?
Q: Could Baby Ring Cost Actress Her Child?
A: It was a dream come true for Angelina Jolie when she and her then husband, Billy Bob Thornton, adopted a baby boy from Cambodia about a year and a half ago. They named him Maddox, and when the superstar couple split, she got custody. Jolie was in Cambodia shooting the first "Laura Croft" movie when she visited an orphanage and decided to adopt. But while she was trying to bring Maddox home, the INS issued an order stopping all adoptions from Cambodia because of all the improprieties. For months Jolie was not allowed to take Maddox to the U.S. Jolie kept the baby with her in Africa while she worked on her film "Beyond Borders" as the INS continued to investigate. Finally, our government gave its seal of approval to the adoption. But now the feds say the Seattle-based adoption agency that brokered Maddox?EUR(TM)s adoption was crooked, and maintain that babies were being bought and sold. The agency was shut down, the woman who ran it now awaits sentencing for conspiracy, and feds say she lied when she claimed some of the kids were orphans. So where does that leave Jolie and her beloved little boy? There are rampant news reports suggesting that Jolie may loose little Maddox. Hollywood attorney Karen Lane specializes in adoptions. She says the doe-eyed superstar and her baby are most likely safe. I seriously doubt she'll loose Maddox. This was a legal adoption with the stamp of approve of State. When I saw the term "baby ring" I thought it mean a baby ring, you know the kind that's worn on the finger. I have my baby ring--a little gold heart.
