Dan and Sue Hostetler of Ohio adopted a boy from Liberia last year. The official records said he was 14, but the Hostetlers weren't so sure. Doctors subjected their son to a battery of tests, and concluded that he is probably two years younger than the records suggest.
On Aug. 8, the Hostetlers will take the medical evidence to Wayne County Probate Court and legally change Momodu's birth year from 1991 to 1993.
"Momodu will be upset if we change his birth date," Sue Hostetler said with a chuckle. "Now he'll be years away from driving." [Link]
