The couple has yet to comment

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have decided to adopt a Syrian child. An anonymous source claimed Jolie wanted to adopt three brothers whose father was taken by soldiers and mother was killed in a bombing.

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - Daily Mail reported the couple has three biological and three adopted children, but Jolie wants more. 

After a number of trips to Syria, the Oscar-award-winning actress and director met with the children and was deeply affected and concerned about their well-being. 

The actress has seen the horrors of the Syrian war, which continues to cause famine and death among those trapped between forces. She has spoken out against the effects of the conflict on several occasions. In a speech in November 2013, she urged the world "to save a generation of traumatized, isolated and suffering Syrian children from catastrophe."

Serving as a UN Special Envoy for Refugees, Jolie just returned to the U.S. and attempted to persuade Pitt into adopting the siblings. However, a source said he disagreed due to the possible shake-up in the dynamic they already had with their 6 children.

RadarOnline reported the anonymous source said, "Angie wanted to adopt all three, but when she got back to the United States, and told Brad about it, he said no. Going from six children to nine was just way too much, and Brad was concerned about how it would impact their other kids. But Angie didn't put up a fight. She knew it just wouldn't work. But they compromised at adopting one." 

The couple has yet to comment on the matter but Pitt's representatives initially denied the reports. Despite the earlier denial, a friend of theirs claimed the couple wanted to welcome another child into their home before the end of this summer. The source claimed that Jolie and Pitt are on the same page when it comes to adoption.
