Actress Angelina Jolie is planning to adopt again after giving up all hope of becoming a biological mum.

The 28-year-old believes motherhood has made her a better person, but she has no plans to naturally give birth because she could never ignore the world's orphans.

Jolie adopted her 23 month old son MADDOX from a Cambodian orphanage last year (02), and now wants to offer love and a home to other unwanted kids.

She says, "I'm watching Maddox with other kids now. There was a little kid around the other day who asked me to read him a story and Maddox got very upset, so maybe when he's three and he's going to school I'll adopt again. I'm just trying to calculate what would be the best time.

"The child could be older than Maddox, he could be Maddox's age.

"I know now, because I'm an adoptive parent, there's this weird feeling that if I had a biological child next year (04) that there would be this kid out there that I would have adopted that now isn't adopted, and is now living in a orphanage, so I can't now."
