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.

Ongoing Contact Support

EAC now offers ongoing contact support to adoptive families and adoptees. These paid services are performed by our experienced, trained social workers and as well as our volunteer board members. All fees go back into our programs in Ethiopia. When you use Beteseb Felega (EAC) for ongoing contact or consultation, you are directly contributing to our mission of providing the gift of history to Ethiopian adoptees.boloso-sore-meeting-2

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. We are a non profit organization registered in the United States.
