Dereje's mom

Dereje’s mother, who had been blaming herself for him running away, was the happiest of all to see her son. She explained to us that her son had been asking them to move back to Addis but they couldn’t because their house was demolished. And when he runaway, she blamed herself thinking that she hadn’t done her best to give her son what he wanted. The fact that Dereje realized he had made a mistake in running away added to his mother’s joy.
