Ethiopian siblings searching for girl born October 1984. Her name was Metasebya but this was not known during the adoption process. She was adopted at around three months old with the help of a nurse called Asefash at Black Lion Hospital. Nurse Asefash came with the adoptive parents to the home and took the baby. The adopting family was given all contact information about the remaining family but they never made contact. The Ethiopian family thinks the adoptive parents are Austrian but it is not 100% sure.
The baby’s mother died in childbirth and her father had died before. Her brothers and sisters took care of her as long as they could, and then five of them were placed in Bole Hitsanet Masadegiya Orphanage which is now closed. They remember that the orphanage was used for soldier families.
