Waterloo boy from Ethiopia won't let amputation slow him down
WATERLOO, Iowa --- At just 13 years of age Temesgen Larson has overcome more than any child ever should.
The boy, born in Ethiopia, struggled daily for survival. When his mother fell ill, the child --- then only 5 or 6 --- took to begging on the streets of his city to gather enough food and money to support his family. Two years ago Teme, as he's now known, was rescued by Diane and Scott Larson, a Waterloo couple with two biological children and a previously adopted Ethiopian daughter, Sabrina.
The Larsons knew their journey would not be easy. Sabrina came to them as a toddler with little in the way of verbal skills. She learned English without a problem
Wish him all the best.

According to the article, it seems like you are not the only Ethiopian in the area. You should meet him if you get a chance to do so.
