የኃላ መረጃ ወይም ቀድመ ታርክ / Background information or story Amanual A. (brother):-
“We were in low economic status and for at that time that was the time of war and conflict between the Ethiopian government and the Eritrean government in the border of Tigray. We were live in the border of the Tigray region for at that time so that was one factor because in our house we were 5 children’s so our parents couldn’t feed and educate all of us so my parents decided to give at least one child to the adoption agency. For at that time Letebirehan was 5 years old and she was the last child from our family so they decided to give her to the adoption agency. Then we were link with one organization that was called mission of charity then my uncle Berhe A. was talked to the organization called mission of charity then one day I remember he came in our house with other 2 peoples and he talked to my father and my mother then he took Letebirehan. He was the only person to know about the adoption process and related information about Letebirehan but he was died after a few years of adoption and we don’t have any information about Letebrihan. Still we don’t have photos we don’t have letters and also we don’t have any documents related to my sister Letebirehan”. After she leaved the first orphanage center which she joined firstly, she moved to the agency which involved in the adoption process which is remained unknown for her family and found at Addis Ababa, the agency workers called to the family and informed the family members that Letaberhan was claiming that her mother is alive. Then, her family replayed that it’s not her mother alive, rather she is her grandma. And via phone her family told to her that they hide the reality in case if the existence of her mother canceled the adoption process. And Letaberhan was strongly ordered by her family to hide the reality if they asked her after they off the phone.
