How to Use This Blog

A Wayfarer is a person who is traveling, a particular place, a circumstance, a stage of life, etc. Let's walk the road of adoption together. The journey is so much better with company!
Much of this information is useful for any adoption, but this blog is designed to be a
I hope this blog will be helpful to you in your adoption whether you are considering, waiting or home. I started this blog when we were adopting and found there was next to nothing on the web in any orderly manner. I set about to collect information for myself and then for others. Now, there are more sites for resources, but still not much that brings it all together. I hope this blog will serve as a sort of clearing house for Ethiopian Adoption Information. Please feel free to contribute your knowledge through commenting.
You can search by topic in three ways. 1. Go to the "key word" tabs on top and open pages of links in those topics. 2. Use the "labels list" in the side bar or 3. use the "search bar" above the labels list. You can also browse the blog by month and year in the Posts section or in any of the above as well. The sidebar links are to sites outside of this blog. While I feel they provide good information, I can not vouch for each site with an approval rating. Use your own discernment for each. If you have more to add to the topic, please add it in the comment section of that page or post.

Due date: August 11ish

OH WOW! We have our I171H, immigration permission for the boys to the USA! We got our appointment date with the US Embassy in Ethiopia for August 13th. One month from yesterday. So, from what I understand..... we receive the boys on the Monday before (11th) and have the embassy appointment Wed. and final papers on the Friday (15th). We will probably fly home the 18th. School starts the 21st!
So now I am looking at airline tickets and accommodations, etc.... YEAH!

We had our international shots last week. Not so fun.

The basement is drywalled and painted and the tile and carpet will be done this week. Electric and plumbing fixtures will finish next week.

The church had a very nice adoption shower for us last week also. It is so nice to know how many people are supportive of us and this adventure.

I finished Toddler Adoption, finally. It is a good book, but i have a hard time getting through books that are not fiction. :) Fantasy in particular. I highlighted for Dave. He is reading, There is No Me Without You. VERY good book, a must read. Fascinating so a quicker read even though it is 3x as thick. :) Now I have to zoom through Attaching in Adoption. Glad that the other book covered that in some detail as well.

The girls are doing Vacation Bible School this week. Their project is money for the orphanage in Ethiopia. We hope to find what they would like to have and give it to them as a gift. We are so grateful for the care they have and are giving the boys and all the other children as well.

We are so eager to wrap our arms around our little sons and love them in person.

Until later......
