Yesterday Eby saw his Ethiopian sister, Mesky, for the first time since he was a baby. It wasn’t quite face to face, but it was as close as we could get since we live on different continents – they Skyped.
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.
