Jolie: 'Adoptive Parents More Fit To Raise A Child'

ANGELINA JOLIE insists adoptive parents are more fit to raise a child than biological parents, because their background and personality is thoroughly scrutinised to see if they're suitable for the challenge. The GIRL, INTERRUPTED actress was put through stringent tests before being granted permission to adopt MADDOX, five, and ZAHARA, one. But when she gave birth to baby girl SHILOH NOUVEL earlier this year (06), nobody investigated her suitability as a mother. She says, "It should be hard to be a parent period. I go through many things to adopt. "I'm finger-printed, I'm checked, I go through home studies. I have to prove I'm a decent citizen; a good human being. "That didn't happen to me when I gave birth, so it's interesting that there's no background check when you bring a child into your home in that way."

I was very sad to know that some people are so adverse to Angelina. I am an adoptive parent of 2 kids since 14 years ago and it is a great responsibility to raise, love and care for them. Jolie had sacrificed a lot and is a very generous to her adoptive kids and other people. I hope lots of people will understand the inside motive of a person not judging from the outside. I hope people like Jolie may increase, it would then be an exciting world.

What kind of background checks do you mean?If you have enough money in the bank...If you drink your lover's blood. If you have a different lover every few years, and it doen't matter whether or not he happens to be married to someone else. I could go on. I'm dumb founded..
