119 – Refined By Fire

Tezita (te zi TA) called me from Sacramento, CA, but she tells a harrowing story that originates in Ethiopia. Tezita’s adopted family had many other international adoptees, but she was singled out for solitary confinement. She was sent back to her homeland where she thrived mentally in a boarding school away from her adopters. When she returned she witnessed more abuse and decided she’d had enough. Kicked out of the family, she was forced to thrive independently relying on her communities in faith and adoption.This is Tezita’s journey.

    I too was incredibly touched by your resilience!
    You tell your story without anger, when you have every right to be angry. I wish I could hug your 6 year old self and give you the loving mother and family that every human being deserves.
    Your hope for the future is inspiring. I’m cheering for you’re happiness.
    God bless you,
    Jan Lutz
