leaving soon

Although she was separated from her parents when she was just 4 years old, Bethlehem showed much interest in being reunified with her parents. She grew up with her grandparents and has no idea where her parents live so we had to take her to her grandparents. There, we found out that this was her 3rd time running away and that she’s expressed her wish to live with her parents to her grandparents as well. Accordingly, her grandparents agreed to reunify her with her parents who live in Awassa after they realized she was very serious about wanting to go there. Her return brought much joy to the family. She runaway from home to try to find her parents in Awassa but she ended up in Addis. Her grandparents, although sad that she’ll soon leave them for good, were very happy that she was safe and away from harm’s way.
