A year ago earlier this week, a little 5 month-old boy was brought from an orphanage in one of the southern regions of Ethiopia to live in Addis Ababa at a transition home there. They didn't speak his language. He was sick with chronic respiratory issues. He weighed approximately 11 pounds.
This year he still has the same respiratory illnesses. He is again dealing with a new language and a new place to live.
But he is resilient.
He is strong.
He is filled with life and a personality of his own.
He is our son.
