Ethiopian Mother Searching for Zelalem and Tsion Adopted in 2006 through Atetegeb Worku and Americans for African Adoptions

Ethiopian mother Aregash is searching for her two children Zelalem and Tsion. They were adopted in 2006 through Americans for African Adoptions and Atetegeb Worku Memorial Orphans Support Association. Zelalem was 12 and Tsion was 3. The children’s mother placed them for adoption because their father had died and she could not take care of them properly or send them to school. She had no help and was alone. She is desperate for news of the kids.
