Angelina Jolie, 39, and Brad Pitt, 51, "want to adopt a little girl from Syria," reveals a pal of the pair, parents of Cambodian-born Maddox, 13, Vietnamese Pax, 11, Ethiopian Zahara, 10, and biological kids Shiloh, 8, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 6. "It's in the works." (A rep for Pitt denies the report.) Since 2012, U.N. special envoy Jolie has made at least six visits to Syrian refugee camps, focusing on the war-torn nation's displaced orphans. "Meeting these children was

a heartrending experience," the actress, who had her ovaries removed in March, said in 2014. "Their childhood has been hijacked." A pro at juggling work and mom duties, the multitasker is considering a political role next. Adds the source, "Her dream is to be an ambassador."
