Adoption Addiction?

ad·dic·tion [uh-dik-shuhn] – noun
the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.

a·dopt [uh-dopt] – verb
1.to choose or take as one's own; make one's own by selection or assent: to adopt a nickname.
2.to take and rear (the child of other parents) as one's own child, specifically by a formal legal act.

Hooked on taking, and taking, and taking...having, owning, possessing...

What else could explain Anglina Jolie's considering yet another adoption while healing from and boding with the birth of her twins?

According to the Chinese press:

Angelina Jolie is considering adopting another child. The 'Wanted' actress - who gave birth to twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline last month - was so affected by footage of the recent earthquake in China she is contemplating giving a home to a child orphaned in the natural disaster.
People can be addicted to anything: sex, shopping (taking, owning, possessing), plastic surgery...so why not adopting? It's just another form of collecting. Some collect dolls, other live ones!

Others have said: "Watch Out China Angelina Jolie Wants Your Children!"
Children are like Pokemon to Angelina Jolie, she just has to collect them all, and now reports are saying she is eying China.
And, of course....who is more "entitled" than Angelina...or more motherly? Her father - who got to see the twins in people magazine like everyone else - is stunned and said she had no interest in dolls when she was young. Guess she's making up for lost time!

Mia Farrow also adopted a bunch of kids. Difference? She did it OUT of the limelight! I also know of no children she adopted who were black market.
