Additional information that could be useful in making a match Melaku was found abandoned on the 19th of July at about 10:00 am within the limits of Kebele 15/16 of Kirkos Sub-City at the locality of Stadium. An anonymous tip was made to the police and Chief Sergeant Jared Neguse responded and found him and immediately took him to Sister Zeneb at Edget Orphanage as he was “very infant”. The papers states that he was approximately 3 days old and that he was born on the 16th of July 2008. After a few years we were told that he was probably premature. On the 23rd of September 2008 he was transferred to the orphanage of AC International Child Support, where he staid until the 7th of January 2009. We were officially his parents on Christmas Eve and he has been living in Denmark since the 15th of January 2009.
