TMZ has reported that star of [Mad Max: Fury Road](tag:41445), Charlize Theron has adopted her second child, this time an African-American girl who was born in the United States by the name of August. She spent 6 months working with an adoption agency, and recently sealed the deal on the adoption.
Theron took custody of August in July. She mentioned that she specifically wanted to adopt a girl, as she had already adopted a South African boy in 2012 named Jackson. Very admirable stuff from one of my favorite actresses and activists.
Luckily, I think the world that August will be growing up in will be about 2000x safer and less hot and dry than the Fury Road. Or, at least, I would hope that Theron's family home has water, air conditioning, and reliable shelter. I'm going to bet that it does.
