When Ephie's adoptive parents came to identify their child, they wanted a boy between 6 months and one year old. We had informed the adoption agency that the boy we had of that age did not have one document and would require and additional one or two months. After negotiating with the adoption agency, they timidly requested us to show them a 1 1/2 year old child. When they saw Ephie and were told them his name, they laughed a lot. Rosemary, the HLCH Assistant Director wondered what the problem could be. She tried to ask them, but they could not stop laughing. Ephie is not a common name in Kenya and so Rosemary thought that maybe they found the name funny. When they came to the office later, they told her that the reason they were laughing so was because they had decided that their adoptive son will be called Ephie, the short form of Ephraim. "Isn't God amazing?" they said. "So our son has been here all along."
