Angelina Jolie adopted daughter, Zahara Jolie-Pitt will be visiting Ethiopia for the first time since her adoption on July 6, 2005. The talented actress is planning a trip to Ethiopia next month to celebrate Zahara’s adoption date.
Even though Brad has been Zahara’s dad for nearly all of her life — he formally adopted her a year after Angie did — he’s not going on an emotional 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 are able to talk civilly now. But there’s still a way to go before they reach a place of friendship,” our insider adds.
Angelina has already shown how committed she is to her adopted kids knowing where they came from, as she brought along eldest son Maddox, 15, with her to Cambodia for an extended stay in 2016. He even worked as an assistant on her directorial effort First They Killed My Father, which is about the Khmer Rouge genocide that took place in her son’s native land. The entire family minus Brad returned there for the film’s premiere in March. The former couple brought son Pax, 13, back to Vietnam in 2011, four years after adopting him from an orphanage in 2007. Now it’s Zahara’s turn to visit her origins, only this time Brad sadly won’t be part on the family’s journey.
