ANGELINA JOLIE AND Brad Pitt are planning to extend their family further by adopting another child. This time the couple have looked to Burma to add another orphan to their brood, enlisting the help of one of the country's leading monks to plan a trip to an orphanage. An insider has revealed that Angelina has become 'increasingly despondent' about the moves she is making to help the Third World. She is said to be desperate in her crusade to aid troubled nations and feels Burma is the ideal place to adopt another child – preferably a girl. 'Angelina feels she is barely making a dent in the suffering she sees throughout the Third World as she travels incognito to different countries as a United Nations representative,' said the source. 'She wants to step up her action in what she calls Red Alert areas, the most seriously troubled, war-torn areas in the world.' Angelina is said to believe adopting another girl would balance the Pitt family and a child from Burma would fit into its racial mix.
