The 31-year-old actress arrived after flying
from Ho Chi Minh City, where she adopted the newest member of her family at an
orphanage on the outskirts of the city last week.
Jolie was expected to meet with U.S. Embassy
officials Tuesday. Once the visa is issued, she can take him to the United
States. She was expected to leave Hanoi on Wednesday.
Jolie's oldest child, 5-year-old Maddox, who was
adopted from Cambodia, came with her to Vietnam. She also has two daughters:
Zahara, 2, who was adopted from Ethiopia, and 9-month-old, Shiloh, who was born
to Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, in May.
Ever since she was young she has wanted to adopt
children, Jolie said in an interview published Friday in a Vietnamese newspaper.
"Everyone would agree that children need to have a
family," the paper quoted the Oscar-winning actress as saying. "I have the
ability to help children fulfill that desire. Why should I say no?"
