  1. Hi, we also adopted through WACAP at this orphanage in 2009. We visited the relinquishing family member. We are in the process of having a searcher try to locate them to see if they are still there so we can visit. I don’t have the precise location so I am trying to triangulate it for the searcher based off of photos. I have been looking at Google maps and have possibly located the road to the family home, but I cannot determine which building is Bete Hitsanet. Trying to gather clues anyway I can. Would be awesome if I could get GPS coordinates. I may be the only one who has been to Kombolcha but I am reaching out to anyone who has kids from there.

    1. Kelly,

      An adoptive dad is working on a map with GPS coordinates for places related to Ethiopian adoptions. It will be put up as a page here. I am not sure how it will work exactly but it will be update-able by him, I believe, and he will keep it up as a contributor.

    2. My son lived in Bete Hitsanet in December 2008-February 2009 when he went to Addis to the wacap transition house. I hope to hire a searcher. Have you had any luck?
