Angelina Jolie Discourages Haiti Adoptions Angelina Jolie has urged prospective parents not to adopt Haitian orphans following January's devastating earthquake - because she fears the disaster could lead to a rise in child trafficking.

The Hollywood actress traveled to the Caribbean country earlier this month in her role as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador and spent part of her time visiting injured kids.

Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt share three adopted children; Maddox, eight, from Cambodia, Pax, six, from Vietnam, and five-year-old Zahara from Ethiopia - and they were recently rumored to be considering welcoming a Haitian child into their family. The actress dismissed the reports and she's now urging others not to rush into adoption after seeing news footage from the earthquake-ravaged nation.

She says, "An emergency is not the time for new adoptions in any way. Child trafficking has been a huge problem for a very long time. Everybody that means well needs to really take that very seriously."

"As an adoptive parent, I understand the urge to assist in that way. But people need to not get frustrated but really work with the country."
