Three-year-old Pax Thien Jolie (little boy on far left) is such a cutie!
Pax Thien Jolie was born Pham Quang Sang, but Angelina changed his name to Pax Thien Jolie which means Peaceful Sky – Pax is peace in Latin and Thien is sky in Vietnamese. He was born in November 2003.
Angelina and big brother Maddox picked up the little boy Thursday in Vietnam.
“They tried to make friends with the Vietnamese boy, who cried when he saw them because for him, they are strangers,” said Nguyen Van Trung, the director of the Tam Binh centre for orphans and abandoned children.
“Jolie was very moved. Both of them tried to comfort the little boy.”
Angelina tried some Vietnamese to comfort him, repeating the phrase “khong sao dau,” or “no problem,” to the boy.
The children and female staff at the orphanage “said farewell to Jolie and the two boys” and gave the actress flowers.
The little boy, abandoned in a local hospital when he was a month old, had to be soothed by orphanage staff who promised him a “fun excursion.”
Angelina’s rep confirmed that Angelina arrived in Vietnam yesterday and that the adoption became official today. Angelina, Maddox and Pax Thien will stay in Vietnam for another week until the boy’s passport is ready.
Brad was unable to go to Vietnam due to his filming commitments in LA.
