(Scroll down for video) Angelina Jolie became known for her humanitarian work and her love for helping the less fortunate.

Now, all eyes are on her to see how she will respond to the request of a broken-hearted mother who wants to see her daughter.

The biological mother of Angelina Jolie’s adopted 12-year-old daughter Zahara, is begging to speak to the child.

31-year-old Mentewab Dawit Lebiso from Ethiopia, said that she was forced to place her daughter up for adoption because she was ill after her baby was born.

When Zahara was 6 months old, she was adopted by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Lebiso said that she does not want to take her daughter away from the power couple. She is very thankful that they are giving her daughter a great life, which she said she would not have been able to do as she is poor.

However, she wants to hear her daughter’s voice and stay in contact with her daughter despite the fact they speak different languages.

“I just want her to know that I am alive. I miss her all the time. I think about her every day. I long to hear her voice or see her face. I know when she has a birthday, but I am sad because I can’t celebrate it with her,” Lebiso said.

Lebiso said that she wants Zahara to know that “she has a mother who loves her as much as Angelina does.”
