(news.sawf.org) - Angelina Jolie may become mother to a 3 1/2 year old Vietnamese boy within weeks, according to a Vietnamese official.
The boy was abandoned at a Ho Chi Minh City hospital as an infant and taken into an orphanage. The staff there was unable to locate his parents.
"He is in good health," orphanage director Nguyen Van Trung told AP. He gets along well with other children. However, "He is a little bit shy."
The processing of Jolie's adoption request is being expedited and will be completed before 31 March, the director of Vietnam's International Adoption Department, Vu Duc Long, told the Associated Press on Tuesday.
Once approval is granted, Jolie will be free to pick up the child anytime.
Jolie has applied for adoption as a single mother since Vietnamese law frowns on adoptions by unmarried couples. However, both Pitt and Jolie have jointly planned for the adoption.
