Kim Kardashian Adopting South African Orphan?

Kim Kardashian’s a regular Angelina Jolie….

Kim’s a 30-year-old woman with access to the Internet, newspapers, and TV – but the socialite was apparently “shocked” that so many cute babies in South Africa are without parents to care for them. The sultry singleton is considering adopting an orphaned child from The Motherland after a recent promotional trip to the region to chat up a partnership with Brutal Fruit Cocktails, Life & Style snoops spill in the mag’s Dec. 27 issue. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians stunner was shown a photograph of 16 South African orphans and was so moved by the image of opression that she’s thinking of adopting one of her own.

“She couldn’t believe that all these beautiful little babies were orphans. Kim was in shock — she just couldn’t believe that none of them had a mom or a dad to love them and tuck them into bed at night. That picture really changed her mind about adoption,” a loose-lipped Kardashian squeal told the tab.

Kim reportedly rushed to a nearby orphanage, Door of Hope, where desperate mothers abandon an average of 16 babies per month. In the past month alone, Kardashian has been romantically-linked to two men: male model Gabriel Aubry and NBA hoopster Kris Humphries. But the lack of stability in her love life hasn’t discouraged Kim from moving toward motherhood, says a friend.

“Kim was devastated by the statistics. She contacted her people and asked them to arrange for her to visit the orphanage during her visit. Kim has really come around to the idea that she could raise an orphan as her own child and surround it with the love and family that she grew up with. She’s not afraid to be a single mom anymore. She knows she has the money and the support network to raise a baby,” the source adds.

“Now she just has to find the child that she can be a mother to.”
