How did Connie end up adopting Eyob?
In November 2011, Connie opened up about how she decided to adopt Eyob. She revealed that she had lost both her parents within three years.
One day, she realized that her family was no more. She did have her twin sister, but she said that losing her parents was a huge loss.
She felt more alone as she wasn’t in a relationship with anyone that felt like it was going to be a marriage relationship.
So she made a bold decision as she felt like, "What am I waiting for? I know I want to adopt, I can do this." She always wanted to be a mom.
She realized later on that adoption is not as easy as it seems. She said she had no idea what she was getting into as it turned out to be a really hard thing to do.
After she started the adoption process, she had to wait for three years to bring her baby home.
But she also said that she would only encourage any person who is willing to adopt.
It seems like her son has become her family, and she feels like she isn’t alone anymore.

After the adoption, Connie doesn’t want her son Eyob to forget his roots, so they make semi-frequent trips to his native country in East Africa.
Not only this, but Connie also put up a big map of Ethiopia and Africa in his room.
Connie said that Eyob is a super American kid, but he is proud of being from Ethiopia, and it makes him feel special.
When she was asked if she wanted to give Eyob a sibling, she replied by saying that only after being a parent you are like this is not super easy and is very challenging, so she is not sure about another child.
