Hana Grace-Rose Williams (born Hana Alemu) was a young girl adopted from Ethiopia by an American couple living in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. Carri and Larry Williams adopted Hana in 2008 through Adoption Advocates International (AAI), an adoption agency based in Port Angeles, Washington. Before being adopted, Hana lived in Kidane Mehret Children's Home, a Catholic orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia associated with AAI. After being adopted by the couple, things quickly took a turn for the worse. Hana would go on to be regularly abused by her adoptive parents for three years. This abuse included: spanking and beating, being locked in a closet, being denied food for indefinite amounts of time, being denied clothing and only being able to wear a towel, being forced to sleep outside in a barn, and being forced to take showers with a garden hose. She was even excluded from family gatherings and celebrations and was forced to stay inside during them. On May 12, 2011, Hana died outside of her adoptive parents home from hypothermia. The previous night, her parents had locked her outside, wearing inadequate clothing for the weather. Her autopsy report concluded that food deprivation and extreme abuse had also played a role in her death. Nearly four months later, the Williams were arrested for Hana's death. At the trial, another Ethiopian child testified against the Williams, stating that they had abused him as well after adopting him. In addition to their adoptive children, the Williams had seven other biological children, all who claimed their parents were good people and had never abused them.
