I had a pretty strong connection to Tesfaye who is living at the O'Connor home. I actually filmed a full documentary in ETHIOPIA (his home) about the very program that sent him to America. I tried out the 5-10 Amharic phrases I could still remember, and Tes would shine that ear-to-ear smile right on cue. Some of the footage from my time in Ethiopia in 2010 can be seen HERE: Photo © copyright by Paul Hassell.
