Six years ago, a baby girl was born in Ethiopia. Her mother died shortly after giving birth to her. So the girl was placed in an orphanage in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia’s capitol city) by her grandmother (who was too poor to raise her). She remained in the orphanage until she was six months old….by which point she had become very ill. Dehydrated, malnourished, and suffering from salmonella posioning, her situation was dire. And then a miracle happened: A very compassionate, kind-hearted woman adopted her, almost certainly saving her life by doing so (in fact, this compassionate, kind-hearted woman would later remark that in the cribs on either side of this baby’s at the oprhange were two other babies, suffering from the same things the baby girl that would become hers was. Both were dead within days of that baby girl’s adoption.).
The woman, of course, was none other than Angelina Jolie, and the baby none other than the little girl we know today as Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt. It’s amazing to think of how far Zee’s come in these past six years. In honor of her birthday, I have created two vidoes. The first is a video of pictures of her over the years. The other is a video of pictures of her with Brad over the years. Enjoy!
