We weren’t able to reunify Gelani with her parents. When our team traveled to Ego for her reunification, we found her aunt and were able to learn more about Gelani’s story. Her father lives in an area called Awash with the rest of his children and her mother lives in Ego. Although we wanted to take Gelani to her mother, because she is in an unstable state of mind, we chose to reunify her with her aunt instead. Her aunt was the one who raised her before Gelani came to Addis and her father, whom we talked to on the phone also approved of the reunification. all of us here at the Emmanuel House are going to miss Gelani and hope for the best for her.
