During the Thursday morning welcoming ceremony at the Tam Binh Orphanage, Angelina’s formal introduction to her new 3 year old son didn’t really go as planned. According to the orphanage director, Nguyen Van Trung, the boy started crying when Jolie knelt down to speak to him. People reports:
Jolie wasn’t fazed. “She told me she understands that it’s normal for all young children to be scared,” Trung recalled Thursday. Jolie took the boy (whose given name before he was adopted was Pham Quang) aside in a separate room from the ceremony for him to recover his composure. “Later he was okay, very cheerful and happy,” Trung said. “He even played with his new brother Maddox.”
Jesus, what’s wrong with this whiny kid? You were in a Vietnam orphanage, dude. And you just got adopted by freakin’ Angelina Jolie. The only person who has a greater adoption story than you is Moses.
