Jolie expected to bring home adopted Vietnamese son by early next month

Angelina Jolie's adoption application is being processed quickly and she could pick up her new 3-and-a-half-year-old son within a few weeks, Vietnam's top adoption official said Tuesday.

Officials in Ho Chi Minh City are reviewing her file and should complete their work by the end of the month at the latest, said Vu Duc Long, director of Vietnam's International Adoption Department.

Jolie can pick up the child anytime after the application is approved, he said.

The child was abandoned at a Ho Chi Minh City hospital as a baby and then taken to the nearby Tam Binh orphanage, where he has lived ever since, said Nguyen Van Trung, the orphanage director.

Shortly after he arrived at the orphanage, the Tam Binh staff tried unsuccessfully to locate the boy's birth parents.

"He is in good health," Trung said. "He is a little bit shy."

He gets along well with other children and loves to play soccer, Trung said.

The adoption is being processed quickly because the boy is an older child, and his files were nearly complete before Jolie decided to adopt, Trung said.

Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, have three children: 5-year-old Maddox, adopted from Cambodia; 2-year-old Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia; and another daughter, Shiloh, who was born to the couple in May, reports AP.

The pair made a surprise visit to the Tam Binh orphanage at Thanksgiving, when they were spotted cruising around Ho Chi Minh City on a motorbike.
