Jolie Hopes To Adopt Tsunami Orphan

Hollywood actress ANGELINA JOLIE is so moved by the effects of the 26 December (04) tsunami in South Asia, she's embarked on plans to adopt one of the regions many orphans.

The brunette beauty, who is a UNITED NATIONS (UN) Goodwill Ambassador, recently announced plans to travel to hard-hit Sri Lanka in the coming weeks to help out as best she can, and now she also hopes to have one of the children in her custody.

She tells American TV show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "I think if children need a home, to adopt them is wonderful.

"I will be looking into the orphans that have just lost their parents, but always wherever there's a need. So we'll see how big my family grows over time."

The plight of the world's orphans has long been a subject close to Jolie's heart - in 2002 she adopted Cambodian orphan MADDOX.
