Brad & Angie to Pax: You're Officially One of Us!

2/21/2008 5:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have officially adopted little Pax Thien.

We've learned they went to L.A. County Children's Court in Monterey Park, Calif. yesterday and appeared before a judge who finalized Pax's adoption.

The adoption was a two-step process. First, the adoption had to be approved in Vietnam, where Pax was born. The second step was getting an L.A. judge to approve the adoption -- that was done yesterday.

A rep for Angie tells us the Jolie-Pitts were literally celebrating at the courthouse. Mama Jolie walked out with a teddy bear -- a private foundation gives a stuff animal to every family that goes to Children's Court.

Hey Pax -- you're officially one of the luckiest young'uns alive!

I have two adopted children: one from Romania and the other from Belarus. It is not neccessary to "re-adopt" your child in the United States once the overseas adoption has been granted. I don't understand why they went through the second adoption procedure in L.A. Also, adopted children no longer need to be "naturalized." They are considered US citizens ( as children of their adoptive parents ) as soon as their adoption is granted and they are cleared to leave their birth-country. They have the same rights as biological children of the adopting parents, once the adoption is finalized.

How is he so lucky? The poor kid's parents died. Both of them (or abandoned him). He will grow up displaced from his home & culture. Yes, he's lucky he will grow up with money &, presumably people who care for him, but he is not lucky to have been an orphan & those issues are life long.

Angie adopted Pax as a single parent.

The "2nd adoption" is for Brad to adopt Pax in the USA.

Not all celeb kids end up in rehab.

Off the top of my head, quite a few are doing well, NOT in rehab.
It's how the parents raise the children that are important.

One example is Gwn Paltrow. Her mother works only in the summer while the children were growing up.

How people be so cruel to an obvious loving family is beyond me? They are opening their hearts to children that need good, stable loving homes. They should be commended and left alone. They don't pimp their children for publicity shots, the paps just always follow them around-hello. They always handle themselves with the utmost class and should be treated with respect.
Thanks

He isn't lucky- he has been taken from his culture and any family he had, and his history will haunt him all of his life. He knows he doesn't look like anyone else in his "family"- and he will search for relatives when he is older. Because adoption isn't a cure all. Taking a child from his culture is criminal if you have enough money to support that child where he should be. I am sorry for him and for all the other foreign born adoptees who will pretend that they never noticed how different they were.

# 71 Their children will never be deprived of their culture. In fact she has made trips back to their homeland and she vows to continue to take them back as they grow up. Jolie stated that they celebrated Christmas, Kwanza, etc. so that each child got to know their heritiage. In an interview with two teen she stated that she would go back to Africa because after all she did have daughter from there.

Thank you Brad and Angelina for being charitable, loving parents and living as true humanitarians. Saving/adopting children regardless of their origin or race is the deepest expression of love towards humanity. You both live your hearts in the open that is wonderful! My carpool girl is adopted from China and is truly American, she wants to amend the constitution so she can be President of the United States! She is thirteen years old and is pure brainy, artistic, happy and contented child. She is grateful to her American family and most grateful to her adoptive county. I expect Brad and Angelina to raise their children the same way, lets see them growup to be productive human beings and make the world a better place. Namaste!
