Additional information about the child The child had been living with her aunt until 2008, age 6. At that time, she was taken back by her mother to Addis Ababa. Her mother took her to be placed for adoption. False information was given to the court about the child’s parents. Grandparents may have been listed as her parents. Her age was also given incorrectly: she was about 6 but was listed as age 3. The name SISEN was used when she was adopted, but this is probably not her correct birth name.

The girl’s mother died in 2013, and her father died before that. Her cousin Samuel is looking for her.  She left for adoption to Spain on September 8, 2008.
