Male child Beletew / Beletu Mekonnen or “Abi” or “Abee” was given for adoption by his mother in 2013 when he was four years old. He was adopted to Spain.
Tewabech and Beletew were living in the house where she worked. They did not have a place for themselves. When Beletu got older and ready for school, Tewabech told to him that she should let go of him for adoption, for she could not sacrifice his bright mind, for the sentiment of living together. She gave him for adoption and he left to Spain when he was about 4 1/2 years old.
When Tewabech was providing the information about her child she was on her knees and crying. She just wants to get letter and pictures of Beletew as she used to get 3 years ago.
