Although Zahara was adopted from an orphanage, Zahara's mother says that she was told she would be able to see Zahara on visits, but has not since the adoption.

The birth family is claiming that they were misled. They say that the family was told by local officials that they would maintain contact, hoping that Brad and Angie would bring Zahara back for a visit.

"I want my daughter to come home to see where she is from," Lebiso, 24, said. "Her grandmother and I both tried very hard to raise her, and I want her to come home to regain her identity."

"After they took the baby, they didn't keep in contact. They didn't tell us anything about her," Zahara's aunt said.

Dr Tsegaye Berhe from the adoption agency said Jolie had no obligation to keep in touch with Zahara's blood family.

Legally, the family could challenge Angelina by taking the case to court, otherwise Zahara may initiate a reunion when she reaches an age to do so, on her own.
