And if she survived, then a difficult fate awaited her. At best, she would have to collect sugar cane. But one incident changed her life completely. Hollywood star Angelina Jolie decided to adopt this baby in 2005.

 At that time, the actress was dating Brad Pitt and she didn’t yet have biological children. But she already had an adopted three year old son, Maddox. Originally from Cambodia, the actress was actively involved in a charitable mission and traveled to poor countries of the world to help children. 

Seeing a six month old girl, she was immediately fascinated by her. Everyone thought that the girl who was an orphan

it was reported that her mother died a few days after giving birth. According to some sources, the woman died from bleeding.


 According to others from AIDS. Girl’s father was unknown. Zahara had only a grandmother, Almas Bolivianhe, who lived with her three daughters in the Sunbaked town of Alassa. The family spent their whole life in an old one room shack with no telephone or electricity, leaky roof, crumbling walls and a burner in front of the house for cooking.

 There were no more amenities. Grandmother raised the horror for the first four months of her life. But then she realized that she couldn’t feed her because she only had $9 a month. She gave the girl to an orphanage so that at least she was fed there. When the grandmother found out that the girl who would be adopted by a Hollywood actress, she was glad and didn’t try to return the child.

 The 45 year old woman could neither read nor write, but all that she asked was to send her a photograph of her prosperous granddaughter one day.

All I ask is that one day Ms. Angelina would send me a picture of my granddaughter so I can remember her. And those beautiful big brown eyes.

 They are just like my daughter’s eyes, she said. How terrible that in some African countries people are forced to give their own children to other hands just because they cannot support them. Life is cruel, but this little girl was lucky. 

If she had stayed in her own home, she most likely would never have learned to read and to write. She would live in a shack and work for $1 a day. But her fate was incredible.

 Immediately after their adoption, angelina Jolie, along with Brad Pitt, returned to the United States. Since then, Zahara has been living in real luxury. However, her real happiness in her life was not money, but family. The girl had new parents. Brad Pitts became her official adoptive father, and she received the double surname Jolie Pete. 

Her new mother and father really loved her. However, the girl’s life was not as perfect as it might seem.

From the first days, she was surrounded by the attention of the press. The paparazzi were everywhere, waiting for Julie with her adopted daughter. 

But the worst thing is that the reporters fabricated a story that the family is allegedly trying to return the girl back to Ethiopia. They took advantage of the family’s poverty and brutally manipulated them.

 Soon, reporters revealed another fact from the life of the harsh family. It turned out that her biological mother was alive.

 Meant Wave david gave an interview to reporters where she said that she became pregnant against her will. 

One day, a man attacked her and she couldn’t resist. She didn’t even know who the father of her child was. However, she decided to keep everything a secret because in Africa this is a taboo.

 The woman to whom this happened is considered disgraced. Everyone will blame her and no one will punish the criminal mental. AB gave birth to a girl in the family home and then realized that she could not feed her and gave

her up to her grandmother. I have never disputed the adoption of my baby by Angelina Jolie. I think my daughter is a very fortunate human being to be adopted by a world famous lady. 

I wish them both all the success they deserve, she said. In 2007, Zahara grew up in a large and happy family. Soon, Julie adopted another child and gave birth to three biological ones.

 Zahara has five brothers and sisters, but in 2017, when the girl was twelve years old, her biological mother appeared again and suddenly asked to be allowed to see her child. Please, just let me talk to my daughter, she told Daily Mail Online.

 However, as we know, Zahara doesn’t communicate with her biological mother because the real mother is the one who raised and not the one who gave birth. Nevertheless, she visited her homeland in Ethiopia several times. A special visit took place in 2019, when Zahara met with Ethiopia’s first female president. They discussed the culture and history of the country. Gilly is sure that adopted

children should know their roots. However, she didn’t lose a hurry to see her biological mother because she thought it would be bad for her. Zahara is 17 today. Among all the children of the actress.

 She is the most unremarkable. The girl has never been at the center of scandals. She is perhaps the calmest person in this family but at the same time her mother can be proud of her.

Zahara created her own collection of jewelry voiced Meng Meng in the movie Kung Fu Panda three and also helped her mother in social work. She is currently studying at the prestigious Spellman college in Atlanta and Jelly is very happy for her.

 My daughter is from Ethiopia, one of my children and I have learned so much from her. She is my family, but she is an extraordinary African woman and her connection to her country, her continent is very it’s her own, she said. 

Of course, some people continue to criticize Jolie for adopting a girl who is not an orphan but in fact was taken from the family. But just look at

how incredible the life of this African girl has developed. What do you think? Should Zahara communicate with her biological mother or not? Thanks for watching. Don’t forget to share your thoughts with me to click like and to subscribe. See you next time

  1. If Zahara wants to meet with her biological Mother I think it would be a good thing for both mother and child to bring peace. She should know her roots where she came from. These situations are very hard in life with poverty when a mother can’t provide for her child has to give it away through adoption. Heartbreaking for everyone involved but Zahara now is very lucky to have Angelina Jolie to care for her providing her with a good life proper schooling and future.
