(news.celebritywonder.com) - Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany are considering adopting an African orphan.
The "A Beautiful Mind" star Jennifer, who visited orphanages in Mozambique while filming her new movie "The Blood Diamond," is considering returning to the country to adopt an orphan.
Jennifer told Britain's Independent newspaper: "We absolutely considered adopting."
"We have a son who went through a separation of his parents and then a new stepfather and a new sibling. He's had a lot of change so I have to be sensitive to him."
"These are reasons why I didn't come home with a child even though, believe me, I would call Paul at night when he was away."
"I'd say, 'There's this baby and I don't know what to do and I love him so much and if I leave here he might die.' It's complicated, but we are still considering."
The "Labyrinth" star has a nine-year-old son, Kai, from her relationship with photographer David Dugan and a three-year-old son Stellan with husband Paul.
Jennifer spent all her free time between filming in the orphanage and found it difficult to say goodbye to the children she befriended.
She said: "Leaving them was just devastating. I've tried to stay in touch. You start to forge friendships and then you leave, and I had to ask myself was it worse to have gone and created relationships and been another person who left? Or would it have been wrong to have done nothing at all?"
