Additional information that could be useful in making a match  Elsa (born in 1994/1995) and Tariqua (born in 1997/1998) were born in Sajia, a little town near Jimma, and they lived there together with their parents, sisters and brothers. Their mother died soon after the birth of Tariqua, in 1997 or 1998. Few years later, also their father died for an infection, so Elsa and Tariqua remained with their siblings: Messeret (today about 31-32 yo), Tesfaye (about 29-30 yo), Berreket (about 27-28 yo), Tzekka (about 24-25 yo). In July, 2002, Elsa and Tariqua were taken from Sajia to Addis Ababa, in Kidane Mehret Orphanage and we met them March 29, 2003. We are looking for their siblings. We suppose all siblings (Tzekka, Berreket, Tesfaye, Messeret T.) remained in Sajia, Jimma, where Elsa and Tariqua were born.
