Ethiopia - Journee, Meya, and Maree Bradshaw

Three sisters aged 13, 11, 6 are solicited for adoption by CWA. They believe they are coming to the USA on an education program and that they will return to Ethiopia.

The adoptive parents were told the girls were 7, 6, and 4 with a dead mother, a dying father, and no one to care for them. Their father was alive and healthy, with middle-class income, and the girls had 3 older sisters, and older brother and extended family who also cared for them.

The girls father received money for placing them for adoption.

Journee Bradshaw's adoption ended in disruption, and later she changed her name back to Tarikuwa Lemma.
