In latest celebrity news, it looks like there won’t be any extra children added to the family! Celebrity couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had plans to adopt from the country Cambodia, but those were quickly shut down. According to, Jolie sparked rumors that she and Pitt were looking to adopt last month when they visited Cambodia. Sao Samphois, a spokesperson for the country’s government, pointed out that the adoption might be impossible for now. He told Phnom Penh Post the adoption between the two countries is not open yet, since America suspended adoptions from Cambodia over trafficking concerns. Hopefully the celebrity couple can make their family larger one day!

This celebrity couple isn’t expanding their brood anytime soon. How do you know if adoption is the right choice for you?

Cupid’s Advice:

Adopting can be a tough decision. You have to know why you want to adopt and if you can handle the adoption process as well as the children. Cupid has tips to let you know if you’re ready or not:

1. Reasoning: Adoption may be right for you if you know why you want to adopt. You may want to adopt because you aren’t able to conceive, but still want to experience parenthood. You should have a good reason to want to adopt, such as wanting to expand your family.

2. Handling the commitment: Are you able to handle the commitment? Most times your lifestyle will change, and your time is no longer your own. If you can’t handle that type of change, you may want to wait until you’re more ready.

3. Relations: How do you feel about the child not being biologically related to you? If that’s a problem for you, or you don’t know how to make the child feel loved within the family, adoption may not be for you.
