Additional information that could be useful in making a match With the other adoption papers there were this letter, written by the Sm. Crispin from the Missionaries of the charity. Here it goes:
” Dear friends, this is to certify that the child membara, 2 months old is an orphan child abandoned by her own Mother on the street. Police took her to the Hospital of St. Mary from where child was send to our home in Adwa…”

I moved from orphanage in Addis Ababa to foster home, which was also in Addis Ababa (in Arat Kilo). The “boss” of the foster home was called Tewabech (Mama). There were also this nanny, whose name was Furut. In foster home I was from three months old to nine months old, and after that I was straight adopted to Finland.

In Ethiopia there were two people who handled and were involved a lot in my business, paperstuff and everything, Bekelech Muluneh and her husband Deribe Nesibu. If somebodies would know anything that I don’t I think those two would be the ones.
