The old woman "had so many children she didn't know what to do." But Angie knew EXACTLY what to do.
First there was the question of housing. The shoe was much too crowded for a pack of kids. Jolie arranged rent subsidies and moved the woman and her family into a "side-by-side" duplex, a roomy pair of boots (pictured here), providing multiple bedrooms and baths -- even a hot tub. Next she signed the old woman up for parenting classes. She was a fast learner and now the old woman no longer whips the kids or forgets to give them bread with their broth.
In fact, since the transformation, the now cheerful old woman and her brood can often be seen walking the streets of the French Quarter in New Orleans and buying (with food stamps) gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, beignets, and lots of other delicacies.
Jolie has been criticized for having more interest in foreign, rather than American, children. No way, her friends say. They do have a question though: Will Angie find herself one day in the "shoes" of the old woman, with so many children she won't know what to do? Stay tuned.
