Celebrity Adoption: Jennifer Aniston?

HollyBaby breathlessly reports:
Jennifer Aniston has left the dream of marriage behind and is starting a family as a single mom– she’s adopting a baby from Mexico! Star magazine is reporting that Jen has signed all of the adoption papers and will welcome her first child just in time for her 42nd birthday on Feb. 11. “The long wait is over,” a friend tells Star. “The time has arrived.” We are so excited for Jen!

After several secret trips to Casa Hogar Sion orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico, sources say that Jen came to the realization that she was ready for motherhood. Cofounder of the orphanage Carmen Gonzalez says that during Jen’s visits she “got on with all the children, but spent most of her time with the babies…she loved them. She was in the nursery for a long time, playing with them and cuddling them.” But whether Jen has chosen to adopt from this orphanage is still a closely guarded secret, although friends say she has always wanted to adopt a child from Mexico. “She loves the culture,” a friend explains. “She says that they’re our neighbors, and there are so many children there who need a good home.” We agree, Jen!

I am skeptical this is true, but if it is, good for her.I suppose she made an effort not to adopt from a country that Brad has adopted from. Doesn't matter; it only matters she is a good mom to a child needing a home. I wish she would adopt a non-infant, to promote older-child adoption, would be my only regret with this story...

From what little I know of the process involved, it takes a minimum of two years, often longer. Not a skip and a jump, not ever. Never certain until the last bit done, either. You can be years in on your court process, and anything can stop it from being completed. I don't know many agencies who would even consider it.

Good for her, if she manages it. She's be one of the very few, celebrity or otherwise, to accomplish it.

Her rep has denied that the story is true...
