Atsede chose to lie to us and waited to see what we would come up with. Unlike what she said, she didn’t run away from her aunt because she broke a bottle off liquor but because she overheard her aunt talking on the phone, saying she was going to send her back home. through the local police and Wereda administration, we were able to locate and talk to her father on the phone. After talking to her father and getting her aunt’s (living in Addis) address, we contacted her and she came to the Emmanuel House for the reunification. Atsede’s aunt had her doubts about Atsede’s behaioral change but hoping that the lessons and her whole stay at the Emmanuel House did some good, we reunified the two.
