A Bay Area woman has been monitoring the Ebola outbreak closely as she is adopting a 14-year-old boy from Sierra Leone in West Africa.
Natalie Wisniewski of San Francisco is preparing for a trip that may be a threat to her health, but one that she says is worth the risk.
“Hand sanitizer…a total must,” said the new mom as she packed her bags.
She says she’s excited yet apprehensive.
“I’m pretty frightened because I’m going there tomorrow,” said the 43-year-old.
Frightened that Ebola may cause delays in her trip.
Wisniewski is flying to Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone Tuesday afternoon to be reunited with the teenage boy she adopted a few months ago.
The biotech engineer tells KTVU during her first trip to Sierra Leone in January, she met Kai Smart, an orphan who impressed her with his intelligence and thirst for knowledge.
“Seeing the kind of person he was and the opportunity that I could provide for him,” said Wisniewski.
To authenticate the adoption, U.S. embassy officials in Sierra Leone will likely need to travel to Kenema, the boy’s hometown.
Wisniewski pointed to a map of the region, telling KTVU the boy’s birth certificate and other documentation would come from there.
Kenema happens to also be the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak.
“I fear that they would just delay it until the whole Ebola outbreak has kind of subsided,” said Wisniewski.
The new mom has an appointment with embassy officials Thursday in Sierra Leone.
She hopes to convince them to expedite the process, concerned about her son’s potential exposure to the deadly virus and eager to be a family here in the Bay Area.
“Anxious to get him here to start high school so he can start the process of adjusting to life here,” said Wisniewski.
She says she received help from the staff of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and U.S Senator Dianne Feinstein in getting a meeting with embassy officials quickly.
Wisniewski told KTVU she bought a one way ticket because she doesn’t know how long the whole process will take, given the Ebola outbreak.
