Summary
With transnational adoption becoming increasingly common, this heartwarming story of an Australian family that stretched itself to include an orphaned Ethiopian brother and sister has great resonance.When Anne and Steve Low first heard about the orphaned Ethiopian children, they already have two teenage boys, one their biological son and the other adopted as a baby from Papua New Guinea. They fly to Addis Ababa to meet Eleni, age five, and Sissy, age 7. The children are confused and silent, as their foster mother who can no longer afford to care for them, relinquishes them to the care of the Lows.Little Brother, Little Sister follows the family back in Australia over a two year period as they deal with the issues of grief, language barriers and new roles within the family. Eleni and Sissy learn to deal with the memories of their tragic past, as they experience the harmony and friendship within the Low family. It is a slow process, painful and imperfect, but ultimately uplifting. Their story has a happy ending as the Low s decide to adopt the older brother of Eleni and Sissy who had been left behind
