Daughter looks for former
Peace Corps dad
July 30, 2006
AD--DIS ABABA - Azeb Tim Williams was fathered by an American Peace Corps volunteered who had lived in Ethiopia between 1968 and 1972. Tim Williams was in Ethiopia in 1999, according to the source, trying to trace the young woman with whom he had a baby. Hoping the public would help her find her dad, Azeb has issued the following letter of appeal:
My name is Mrs. Azeb Tim Williams. I am an Ethiopian woman seeking USA citizenship on the ground that my father Mr Tim Williams who was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia (1968-1972) is an American through and through. Mr Guangul Teshager, a full time Ethiopian government company lawyer, became very sympathetic with my situation and volunteered to help me absolutely for free during his spare time.
I did appear with Mr Guangul Teshager before the US Consular Officer in Ethiopia claiming US citizenship. The US Consular Office in Ethiopia has required Mr Tim William's written acknowledgement. I submitted his letter of acknowledgment which he signed 36 years ago. They again wanted Tim Williams to confirm that the signature on that document is his signature. Mr Tim Williams was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia from 1968-1972.
Mr Tim Williams was loyal to the mission and objectives of the Peace Corps as an institution. He sacrificed the comforts of America and volunteered to help Ethiopians in an unfamiliar and stressful situation. I am confident he won't do anything that dusts the long standing excellent name of the Peace Corps. He did many wonderful jobs during his stay as a peace Corps from 1968-72 and that was the time he met my mother and I was born from that relationship.
I am now looking for him. My lawyer, Mr Guangul Teshager, has filed a petition on my behalf to the USA Embassy in Ethiopia. The USA Embassy officials in Ethiopia are trying to reach him. Tim's email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) which I found in the internet bounced back. I am told by my mother that he was kind and considerate. He could be as well toiling trying to trace me.
I heard he was in Ethiopia in 1999 but I presume he might have been disappointed after a long tedious search to meet his first daughter. I beg you to assist my father in his search to find his daughter.
I can be reached through my lawyer, Mr. Guangul Teshager. My lawyer's email address is: email@example.com. His cell phone is: +251911256492
I highly value and appreciate your kind cooperation.
Azeb Tim Williams
