There is something off about Tigist’s story but we can’t put our fingers on it yet. She lived with her grandmother until age 4 and then moved to her mother in Awassa. After living with her mother and stepfather for years, they recently moved to Addis because of work related issues. After their move to Addis, Tigist and her mother couldn’t get along and her mother finally kicked her out. A lady who found her on the streets took her in and a couple of days later, took her to the police. Tigist says her grandmother is too old to take care of her. she wants to go to the lady who took her to the police but we have made it clear that is not a possibility.
