Zahara Jolie-Pitt ‘s biological mother is pleading with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for an opportunity to reconnect with her daughter.
In a new interview with the DailyMail, Mentewab Dawit Lebiso does not want to take the place of Angelina, but just wants to be a part of the now 12-year-old’s life in some small way.
“I just want her to know that I am alive and here and long to be able to speak with her,” Lebiso said to the online publication. “I do not want my daughter back but just to be in contact with her and be able to call her up and talk with her.”
“Angelina has been more of a mother to her than I have ever been,” she said. “She has been with her since she was a baby, but that does not mean I do not miss her. I miss her all the time. I think about her every day and long to hear her voice or see her face. I know when she has a birthday, but I am sad because I can’t celebrate it with her. I would so much want to celebrate with her on her birthday and other special days.”
She continued, “I would like Zahara to know she has a mother who loves her as much as Angelina. I know her life is with Angelina is in another country and she speaks another language than me. She has a life that I could never give her, but I would still like to have some contact. I would like to see her face. She has grown into a beautiful woman, and I am so proud of her. My heart bursts because I am so proud.”
“We all die sometime and before I die I would like her to know about me and that she has family here in Ethiopia. I would ask Angelina to let me speak with her. I do not think it is too much to ask,” she concluded.
This made me a little emo!
What are your thoughts, Dancers? Should Brad and Angelina give Zahara’s biological mom a chance?
