One Adult, One Adopted Child, Please

2/20/2008 2:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Fresh from a weekend in the snow, Angelina Jolie and son Maddox spent some time at the movies yesterday. Their flick of choice? "The Spiderwick Chronicles."

Mommy's "naked CGI movie" is long gone from theaters.

This is so sad. As an adoptive parent myslef I find this headline to be very tasteless!!!! No matter what we think of these celebrities or any one else for that matter if one is going to parent a child and give them the love they need and deserve that should be respected! Whether that child is their biologial child or not !!!!!!!! A child is a child and you all should be ashamed of yourselves for labeling a child becasueof their cirumstances because it's not their fault that they were brought into this world and it's our jobs as adults, communities, etc. to love them and support them and raise them to be positive respectable human beings. What's up with the lack of decency and respect towards our kid's TMZ?????????

As others have said, if you were trying to be funny you weren't. Terrible headline. Stick to picking on adults, and please change that headline.

This headline is so insulting. I am not visiting this site again. I have a daughter I adopted from China and let me tell you I have a stronger bond with her than many of the mothers I know who gave birth to their children. There are all types of ways to become parents and I happened to choose to adopt rather than give birth as Angelina did with three of her four kids. I am so sick of people knocking adoption..

How is going to a movie exploiting an adopted child? Just because Angelina goes out in public she's exploiting her kids? Give me a break.

That headline is so incredibly offensive. I too came to TMZ for laughs, but I will no longer make that mistake. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

WOW...the day I come back to check out your website after leaving because of the last poor taste headlines, I see this. What is your problem..this is so uncalled for. Children of celebs are off limits especially little one's. Her "adopted" Children ARE IN FACT HER CHILDREN, no need to state how they came into their family, I mean really, this is not news or gossip, leave Children alone.

Please everyone, boycott TMZ...if we need gossip has never attacked Children as far as I know!!

can't fool me    

One poster asked about why Angelina didn't adopt American children. As the mother of adopted international children, I can tell you that there are many, many reasons why a person might not choose domestic adoption. Most compelling, many of us witnessed Baby Jessica being torn from her mother's arms and realized we would not survive the loss of a child. Child availability is also a factor in domestic adoptions; the waiting period can be very long. Please think twice before you judge Angelina or any person who has adopted. You DON'T know their story.

I have thought that children that come into a parents life adopted, step child or biological should all be treated equal. I read a while back that Angelina stated that she did want her biological child to be "Spoiled". I think that if she treats all the children equal, it should not come to that. Sooo sad if she feels that what she is doing by making it harder for her biological child will be good. She is soo wrong. I have two Biological children as well as two step children, they were all treated equal...The outcome? Four Brothers that are thicker than molasses.
