Ethiopian sisters are searching for their brother and sister Helen and Tewodros, adopted to Italy around 2003. They were probably around 7 and 5 years old. Their parents are deceased and the other children are unsure of the exact dates of their birth and adoption. The children come from Desse and the adoption was facilitated by St. Miriam or St. Mariam, probably a church.

He was extremely poor. Their sister Helen was placed with relatives. Two or three years after the children were adopted, Melaku died. Helen was very small when all this happened so she doesn’t know the exact ages of the children at the time of adoption.
