Angelina Jolie was left heartbroken after her travels to war-torn Syria, where there are so many homeless children.
Jolie and husband Brad Pitt are reportedly moving forward with plans to adopt a Syrian child.
The Hollywood couple are already parents to six children, three biological including Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and three adopted, Maddox ,13, from Cambodia, Pax, 11, from Vietnam, and Ethiopian Zahara, 10.
An insider revealed that Angelina and Brad want to adopt a little Syrian girl.
The source said, “She has been moved to tears on several occasions over the plight of youngsters orphaned in the Syrian conflict. Now she has sorted out her health issues, she and Brad believe the time is right to adopt another orphan from there, most likely a daughter.”
The actress, who is a special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, has visited Syria refugee camps six times and personally witnessed the devastation in the area.
There are reports that over 70,000 children have lost their fathers and another 3,700 more have lost both of their parents. Some were killed, while others were thrown in prison,
Angelina and Brad both want to bring another child into their home, hopefully by the end of the summer.
A friend to the couple said, “This is something that has become very close to their hearts. They would like to accomplish it, if possible, before the end of summer because, even though they are both busy, their diaries are relatively light for most of 2015”.
Jolie revealed last month that she would be unable to have any more biological children, after having her ovaries removed to prevent cancer.
She also had a double mastectomy two years ago, after losing her beloved mother Marcheline Bertrand to cancer in 2007.
