Haregewoin Teferra


From Melissa'sBlog:

I have learned this morning that our dear friend Mrs. Haregewoin Teferra has died. She felt sick, called for a friend, and died in her bed. I have no more details at this time. I will post here as I learn more.

If you aren't familiar with this incredible womans story I highly recommend There Is No Me Without You. It's on my must read list not only for families involved in Ethiopian adoption but for anyone. This amazing woman will be missed by many but especially the children she loved so deeply.

Oh my gosh! I am so sorry to hear this. I literally am tearing up and I never had the chance to meet her. I know when we were in Ethiopia, Ephrim was telling us that he knew her. I wanted to ask to meet her, but thought it awkward since she didn't know us. Now I wish I had.
What a loss for the whole world.

Wow, there's a beautiful joy in that woman's face. So sad to hear she's got sick so suddenly and died. How precious that she loved on so many children!!

I've been reading this everywhere and I'm sort of in disbelief! Like, NO! What an angel she truly is now...
(and thanks for saying "hi"- yes- let's have a bloggers girls weekend somewhere :)

Oh no ... I have read the book and it changed my view on "WHAT I CAN DO" ... Her heart for the children in Ethiopia was beyond amazing ... She will be so missed and I pray someone will step up to fill her shoes ...

What has happened to all the children that was under her care? How can we help them?
