Ethiopian Family Search: Girl Adopted to Italy in the late 70’s or early 80’s around Age 2

Ethiopian family is searching for a female adopted to Italy whose Ethiopian name is Tirunesh or Emawayesh. Her twin sister Etenesh is looking for her. Their mother Alemitu had left the child in the care of a monk while she went to Harar and Djibouti. While there, she was in a car accident. She sent money to the monk for care of the child. When she returned, she was told the monk had given her daughter for adoption. Since the monk placed the child for adoption, the orphanage may be a religious one. At one point the girl may have returned to Ethiopia to search for her mother Alemitu. Etenesh is her twin sister and is desperate to find her. THE PHOTO is Etenesh, twin sister of the adoptee.
