Give information about child’s Ethiopian family, if known. Mother is named Burtukan and father is named Agidom. I am not sure about my birthday : I have been given a birthday in february 1996 but there is no official record about it so I may have been born in 1995. I think I remember that my mother died and I don’t remember what happened to my father. I may have a big brother but I am not sure. I was found around Gonder, so I was told, and brought by policemen to an orphanage in Addis Ababba called “The little House” and managed by Reine de Miséricorde. I have no information at all about my family. I was told that I am from the Gonder area but without any certainty .
Additional information I have some particular scars and burns that I could describe if any contact appears to be promising. My skin is orange and I have a mole above my left eye and another one on my right ear lobe.
