Ethiopian Family Search – Girl Lewam Adopted to France at Age 3 in 2008 from Tigray Region

Ethiopian Family Search – Daniel is searching for female Lewam, his sister’s youngest child. Lewam was born in Shire Endeslassie, Tigray. Her mother’s name was Tienti N. and her father’s name is Halefom A. Lewam’s mother died and her father was unable to take care of her.

Daniel placed Lewam for adoption because at that time was young himself was not able to raise Lewam. Though she is the only person who is biologically related to him he had to give her for adoption rather than see her die watching her frail body diminish from day to day. There were no more relatives alive to help him sort out things otherwise. After adoption he was able to receive post placement letter and her pictures, that made him happy about his decision. But he was no more able to get the letters or pictures since 2014. He is pleading Beteseb Felega (EAC) to find his only relative on earth – his niece, Lewam.
