There Is No Me Without You: One Woman's Odyssey to Rescue Her Country's Children (Google eBook)
Two-time National Book Award nominee Melissa Fay Greene puts a human
face on the African AIDS crisis with this powerful story of one woman
working to save her country's children.
After losing her husband and daughter, Haregewoin Teferra, an Ethiopian woman of modest means, opened her home to some of the thousands of children in Addis Ababa who have been left as orphans. There Is No Me Without You is the story of how Haregewoin transformed her home into an orphanage and day-care center and began facilitating adoptions to homes all over the world, written by a star of literary nonfiction who is herself an adoptive parent. At heart, it is a book about children and parents, wherever they may be, however they may find each other.
