In May 2009, Pam & Juan Johnson adopted 3 bio siblings in Ethiopia aged 11, 8 and 7 at the time. The siblings believed they were in the US for an education, and did not understand adoption severed ties with their mother. They expected to be able to regularly call and visit their mother in Ethiopia.

In 2006, Johnsons adopted 3 other Ethiopia bio siblings under the belief that the children would be leaving the orphanage for the streets. Turns out the siblings had wealthy extended families.

Both sets of Ethiopia siblings were adopted using Christian World Adoption.
