Male two year old adopted to Canada in 2009. Ethiopian Maternal Aunt named Hiwot is searching for her nephew adopted to Canada in 2009. Child’s name is Cherinet Animut. He was two years old when adopted, and his mother and father were both deceased at the time of adoption. His mother’s request before death was that Hiwot care for her small child Cherinet, and sadly he was taken for adoption without Hiwot’s knowledge. She is desperate to have an update on Cherinet. The Ethiopian organization that processed the adoption was Addis Ababa based Birhane Hiwot Child and Family Aid Association / Berhane Hiwot Children’s Village and Families Services Organization / Berhane Orphanage / Birhane Orphanage / Birhan / Berhan. Cherinet is originally from the Sebeta Area, Alem Gena City, Kebele 2 / Kebele 02. UPDATE: it’s believed that the child’s adoptive parents may have contact with the paternal side of the Ethiopian family but they are withholding access from the mother’s side.
