Adoptive parents on trial in Ethiopian girl's death
Source: Seattle Times
The trial of Larry and Carri Williams in Skagit County has revealed details of alleged child abuse, and highlighted gaps in protection of adopted children in Washington.
Immanuel Williams’ face barely showed over the witness stand.
Many in the courtroom could see only the top of his chair swivel slightly and his eyebrows scrunch up in confusion.
Sign-language interpreters relayed questions to the deaf 12-year-old boy, and the answers flashed from his fingertips.
“Very often that happened,” he signed, “that I went without food.”
Immanuel’s adoptive parents, Larry and Carri Williams, of Sedro-Woolley, are on trial in Skagit County Superior Court, charged with homicide by abuse, manslaughter and child assault for allegedly abusing Immanuel and their adoptive daughter, Hana, and causing her death. They have entered pleas of not guilty.
Hanna rest in Peace. Let me remind readers and our Ethiopian Government that not all adoptions are done of good intent.
Two Americans are in jail in I think Qatar charged of murdering their adopted son from Africa. Their are a husband and wife of Korean descent. The child was not Ethiopian. The inestigation is ongoing. They are suspected that the child died of complications while its kidney was extracted.
WE GOT TO STOP ADOPTIONS.
Poor Kid !!!SHAME on the local agencies specially the Agazi Bandits !!! Her parents were hoping that she would have a better life ."Enat gudwan alayetchewum…” endalehu ye hagere lidji .Our Young ladies enslaved in Arab Countries and the
poor kids falling in the hands of evil so called adoptive parents .Agazi bandits ,TPLF thugs and Aderby Bandas ,this is what the Legacy of your evil master !!!! MAY GOD MAKES HIM ROASTEN FOR EVER IN HELL !!!!!
Lots of Ethiopian children life is changed for good because of adoption. All adopted parents are not evil like the one who adopted Hanna. In some cases biological partners also abuse and murder their own children, even in Ethiopia. The World is full of sick and psychopath people. May God give Hanna the peace and love she didn’t get in earth
Teddy The TEDIOUS,
Do you know how BORING and tiresome you are?
Teddy you need to clear your head and start using your head than your butt. This has nothing to do with the present government.Adoptions are tragic and this kind of stuffs happen quite often. We hear this in America for years and years. Do we have to blame Obama for that ? Nope it started long before him. The same to this too. USE YOUR HEAD PROPERLY. IF YOU DON’T FEEL GOOD SEEK MEDICAL HELP, THERE MIGHT BE CANCER IN YOUR BRAIN.
RIP Hanna. It is very sad. I wish condolence to her parents and families.
What you fucking and annoying person you are. What has the relation between the government and the abusers? From any country kids can adopted and it is up to their chance to get nice or abuser adopters. The government didn’t tell the abusers to make such kind of cruelty.
