PM Abiy and First Lady Zinash welcome newly adopted son

It is to be recalled that Prime minister Abiy and First Lady Zinash Tayachew applied to the federal first instance court on January 22 to get permission for the adoption of a child named Million from the Kibebe Tsehay Orphanage. The court granted permission for the adoption today according to Ethiopian Revised Family Code 191(04). The prime minister’s wife, Zinash Tayachew, who attended the court in person, said her family will give Million all the needed love and care. The couple has three children of their own and their decision to adopt Million has been admired by many. Meaza Ashenafi, President of the Supreme Court, congratulated PM Abiy and First Lady Zenash and praised them for promoting humanity. It is also said that the First couple's decision to adopt is an important lesson for others to make adoption through the legal process. It is to be recalled that Ethiopia banned foreign adoption last January after it approved a law tabled in 2017 in parliament banning international child adoption.
