“Lions Roaring, Far From Home” is an incredible anthology which elevates the voices of Ethiopian adoptees from the diaspora. We feature the essays of 32 writers, who grew up in the U.S, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Australia, ranging in age from eight to over 50.
The purpose of this anthology is to share the unique lived experiences of Ethiopian adoptees. This is the first anthology ever by Ethiopian adoptees.
The co-editors are Aselefech Evans, adopted to the U.S. when she was six years old, Kassaye Berhanu-MacDonald, adopted to Canada when she was one year old, and Maureen McCauley, an adoptive parent of four, including twin daughters from Ethiopia.
