From Soddo to Italy to Idaho

Eby in Addis - March 2007

I am amazed by God.  Truly amazed, and I’ve got a great story to share with you!

When Russ and I adopted Eby, we knew he had an older sister.  She was seven years older than Eby and they had lived together with their mother in Soddo.  We traveled to Soddo on our first trip to Ethiopia and learned that following their mother’s death, the children had been separated and M. (I’ll abbreviate her name) went to an orphanage nearby. We were told that she was then transfered to an orphanage in Addis and adopted by an Italian family.
