Zahara is one child who I am really glad that Brangelina adopted because if she hadn't been adopted by the pair, she very likely would now be dead. In case you don't remember, Zahara's mother died from AIDS and when Brangelina first got Zahara she was near death because she was suffering from malnutrition and dehydration.
Zahara's pediatrician informed Brangelina that Zahara is suffering from hip dysplasia which is hereditary disease that can cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis, and is commonly found in dogs. An operation followed by the wearing of a brace will usually cure the problem and Zahara would likely lead a normal and healthy life.
