an overwhelming experience

Wagaye’s reunification was overwhelming to our new team member, who took part in a reunification for the first time. Wagaye’s father didn’t recognize his daughter at first. He realized it was her when she run to him, hugged him and started crying. This was maybe because Wagaye had been away from home for almost 5years. A few minutes after this, her father started crying. All the while, looking at Wagaye as if he didn’t recognize her and she was someone else. For years, he had no idea where she was or if she was alive, for that matter. He kept calling Wagaye’s cousin, expecting the good news that they had found his daughter but it never came. Finally seeing her in person was a miracle and a wish come true. He was very thankful for NOLM’s services.
