Remarkable, a must read!
Heartbreaking, gutwrenching--this book will mlake you feel everything. I had tears, I laughed out loud, I felt sad, I felt hopeful, I even felt happy, I wished it would not end. It is so much more than just a story about AIDS orphans in Ethiopia. This is a book that should be read by anyone with a conscience. It has changed the way I think. Please give it a try!

The difference one person can make...
Much like "The Little Princes" did for Nepal, this book opens the world of Ethiopia through it's orphaned/abandoned children. Haregewoin TeferraI is now my hero as she opens her heart and home, unable to say no. I loved that it follows some of them from Ethiopian homes, to orphanage, to new homes. The main story line is interrupted for educational information that helps one to understand the political, economic, health and world influences causing this crisis. Made me yearn to make a difference.
