9780747585428: Orphaned: One Woman's Mission to Save Africa's AIDS Children

In a tin-walled compound outside Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, a middle-class woman named Haregewoin Teferra suffers terrible personal losses. In grief, she turns to the church, and is presented with two orphans and asked to house them. Haregewoin agrees. Once she opens her gate, she never manages to close it again. Here is a woman who does not run away from HIV-positive and AIDS-orphaned children, brought to her on foot, by bus or by donkey cart. There are over a million AIDS orphans in Ethiopia; "There Is No Me Without You" tells a few of their remarkable stories through the eyes of a woman whose own life has been altered by them.

About the Author:

Melissa Fay Greene is the highly acclaimed author of Praying for Sheetrock, The Temple Bombing (both shortlisted for a National Book Award) and Last Man Out. Sheetrock was included in the 'J' list, compiled by New York University, of the top 100 works of journalism in the 20th century. Greene's December 2002 New York Times magazine article on the plight of the AIDS orphans inspired scores of adoptions and an outpouring of financial support for African orphanages and clinics. She and her husband, Don Samuel, live in Atlanta with their seven children, including two adopted from Ethiopia.

From AudioFile:

Melissa Fay Greene documents the tragic lives of the children of Ethiopian AIDS victims. Greene focuses on the efforts of Haregowoin Teferra and her orphanage while chronicling how the Ethiopian government and much of the world ignore these innocent children. Greene herself has adopted two children from the orphanage. The highly personal book is read with intensity by Julie Fain Lawrence. Lawrence's emphasis of key phrases and critical events allows listeners to share in what Greene calls "an unfolding disaster." Despite the nature of the material, the story also celebrates the human spirit, and Lawrence's style allows listeners to share Greene's belief that these children can survive, and thrive, in a world that prefers to ignore them.
