Zahara Jolie-Pitt was only six months old when Angelina Jolie adopted her adopted her on July 6, 2005. She traveled to Ethiopia with then-boyfriend Brad Pitt, to get her new little girl and after 12 years she’s taking her back to her country interestingly. “Angelina is planning a trip to Ethiopia next month to celebrate Zahara’s adoption date. She’s always been very committed to each of the children knowing their birth country, and all about their heritage, so she’s keen for Zahara to spend time there. Angelina will be taking all of the children, and they’re excited as they all love to travel,” a source near the 42-year-old performing actress tells.
Even though Brad has been Zahara’s father for almost every last bit of her life — he formally embraced her a year after Angie did — he’s not going to be coming on what is certain to be a passionate family trip. “Angelina hasn’t invited Brad — even though both Zahara and Shiloh have said they would love their dad to go — because it’s still too difficult and painful for Angelina, and she still harbors a lot of anger towards Brad. They’ve moved on a lot from even a couple of months back, and they can talk civilly now. But there’s still a way to go before they reach a place of friendship,” our insider includes.
Angelina has already shown how committed she is to her adopted kids knowing where they came from, as she brought along eldest child Maddox, 15, with her to Cambodia for an expanded remain in 2016. He even functioned as a colleague on her directorial exertion First They Killed My Father, which is about the Khmer Rouge genocide that occurred in her child’s local land. The whole family short Brad returned there for the film’s debut in March. The former couple brought son Pax, back to Vietnam in 2011, four years after receiving him from a halfway house in 2007. Presently it’s Zahara’s swing to visit her origins just this time Brad sadly won’t be part of the family’s journey.
