40 second.jpegBeteseb Felega means “family search.” Our organization has reconnected more than 40 adoptees with their Ethiopian families since 2014.

It is the vision and hope of Beteseb Felega that every adoptee has access to their birth information and the opportunity for contact with their family of origin.

What’s New?

You may have noticed some new things about our website. We’re growing, and change is an inevitable part of growth. The most obvious update we’ve made is our name: Beteseb Felega. Beteseb Felega means “family search” in Amharic. We’ve chosen Beteseb Felega in order to be more inclusive of the Ethiopian families with whom we work. In Amharic, Beteseb Felega is ቤተሰብ ፍለጋ. The name Ethiopian Adoption Connection / EAC, will continue to be used for a variety of reasons, though you may see it less and less over time. We’ve kept our web addresses, so bookmarks and links will remain. We hope you like our new name as much as we do!

Our Mission.

Beteseb Felega, also known as Ethiopian Adoption Connection (EAC), is a grassroots effort to reconnect family members separated by adoption and to provide compassionate support to adoptees, birth family members, and adoptive parents. Our internet database contains Ethiopian adoption information provided by adopted people/adoptive parents and birth families who are looking for each other.

Beteseb Felega empowers families in Ethiopia who have lost children to adoption by providing emotional and social support through caseworker led discussion groups. We explain the system through which their children were adopted and provide meaningful guidance regarding reunion and ongoing contact with their adopted children. To avoid real or perceived conflict of interest, EAC’s services to Ethiopian families are offered independently of the adoptive families we also serve. Beteseb Felega is the only organization committed to giving a voice to Ethiopian families while providing services focused on their well being post adoption.
