Adopted Children of Celebrities

I don't know how celebrities can claim to want to give their kids an idea of where they came from when they get treated better than almost anyone on the planet.

In Feb. of this year the Jolie-Pitts took their children for Italy. They just upped and took them for a trip while Angelina and Brad's younger biological children stayed home.

Seriously, how many Ethiopian, Cambodian, or Vietnamese kids are flying around the world in private jets getting first hand experience of different cultures and people.

Don't get me wrong, there are many positive things to come of this. Perhaps the Jolie-Pitts will be more open than children who had not had their same experiences. Perhaps they will do something amazing with their uniquely acquired perspective. However, I would appreciate it if I wasn't later told that the same children were also brought back to their countries of origin so as "not to loose a connection to who they are." They have lost connection to who almost any of us are!

I think these kids are getting a great education by traveling, but the second they were adopted by uberfamous and powerful celebrities they lost contact not only with their roots but with most of humanity.
