Kim Kardashian Considered Adopting an Orphan in Thailand

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — Kim Kardashian’s trip to Thailand earlier this year was eye-opening.

However, it could have been even more life-changing than it actually was: The reality TV star briefly contemplated adopting a local orphan named Pink.

“I literally cannot stop thinking about her,” Kardashian said in a clip from her family’s E! TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “I told Kanye, I was like, ‘Honestly, this girl is so sweet and so cute. … I would totally adopt her.”

Kardashian, 33, and West, 37, are already parents to a 1-year-old daughter, North. West’s response to Kardashian’s idea was not captured by the TV cameras, though Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, was opposed to the idea.

“That’s a little aggressive,” she said. “I think you can’t just go to an orphanage and fall in love with a child and then take them home like you’re shopping.”

When Kardashian insisted that wasn’t what she was thinking about, Jenner proposed another idea.

“You get very passionate about things and then you don’t think about the whole thing through,” she said. “I bet there are other things that you could do that would make all the difference in this little girl’s life… without bringing her home.”
