Zahara’s biological mother and her yearning
In 2017, Zahara Marley’s biological mother has repeatedly expressed her desire to get in touch with her child. She had given up her 6-month old baby but is now desperate to see her. Mentewab said:
“I just want her to know that I am alive and here and long t be able to speak with her. I do not want my daughter back but just to be in contact with her and be with her.”
“Angelina has been more of a mother to her than I have ever been. She has been with her since she was a baby, but that does not mean I do not miss her. I miss her all the time. I think about her every day and long to hear her voice or see her face.”
“I know when she has a birthday but I am sad because I can’t celebrate it with her. I would so much want to celebrate with her on her birthday and other special days. I long to be able to have regular contact with her.”
She further said:
“I would like Zahara to know she has a mother who loves her as much as Angelina. I know her life is with Angelina in another country and she speaks another language than me. She has a life that I could never give her, but I would still like to have some contact. I would like to see her face. She has grown into a beautiful woman and I am so proud of her. My heart bursts because I am so proud. We all die sometime and before I die I would like her to know about me and that she has a family here in Ethiopia. I would ask Angelina to let me speak with her. I do not think it is too much to ask.”
