Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt want to adopt another baby, this time from Burma.

They were heartbroken after the actress visited refugees from Burma during a trip to Thailand, London's Daily Mail reports.

Now they are planning to adopt a baby boy from the stricken country, bringing their brood to seven (which includes Maddox from Cambodia, Pax from Vietnam and Zahara from Ethiopia).

Angelina and her partner Pitt, 45, missed out on the best actress and best actor awards at last night's Baftas.

But a source told the Mail that Angelina, 33, has her mind on higher things. She has held meetings with officials in Chang Mai about the logistics involved in adopting a baby.

'She can't stand to see the suffering of these people, especially the children. She spent most of last week at a refugee centre, Ban Mai Nai Soi, along the Thai-Burmese border and met with one woman who has spent more than 20 years in the refugee camp.

Angelina and Pitt also have three biological children, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.

But a source said Angelina, 33, has her mind on higher things. She has held meetings with officials in Chang Mai about the logistics involved in adopting a baby. 'The plight of the refugees from Burma really affected Angelina.

'She can’t stand to see the suffering of these people, especially the children. She spent most of last week at a refugee centre, Ban Mai Nai Soi, along the Thai-Burmese border and met with one woman who has spent more than 20 years in the refugee camp. 'Angelina said she was saddened to learn the woman, who was born in the refugee camp, has never been out of it, and is now raising her own child there.

'She decided then that her next adoption should be from Burma. She thinks if she can save even one child it is better than doing nothing.

'She knew she wouldn’t be able to take a baby home with her this time, but she was very keen to get the ball rolling.'

Angelina and Pitt also have three biological children, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.
