Jolie has been praised for saving the life
of newly adopted Ethiopian daughter Zahara Marley
by a leading U.S. paediatrician. The six-month-old
baby was diagnosed with a salmonella intestinal
infection as well as dehydration and malnutrition
- conditions which would have led to her death
in her African homeland, WENN
Dr. Jane Aronson says, "Children with those conditions
living in orphanages in developing nations can
die quickly without the proper medical interventions.
That would have been Zahara's fate had she not
been adopted by Angelina and brought to the US
for medical care. In spite of her illness, she
was very sweet, engaging and responsive. When
she regained her strength she began to smile and
was very connected to her mother during her hospitalization.
It was clear that the love and devotion of her
mother along with the antibiotics, intravenous
fluids, and formula helped her to recover."
