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.

Travel dates

We have our airline tickets!!! We are going to leave Denver on August 4th t noon. We will return to Denver on August 18th, most likely 5:22 pm. We are waiting to see which return flights come through. It is really really full on all the flights so we are waiting to see how it turns out. The travel agent, Susan Parr, is working on it so we don't have to. :)

Today Jake and Jeff and my parents helped us move a ton of stuff over to the house from storage. We brought over toy shelves, craft and office cabinets, desk, chairs, beds for the boys, etc..... It was great to have such good help.

In the afternoon my parents helped us with some of the work. We cleaned up the cabinets (these are circa 1880-1900 cabinets out of First Methodist's Hibbard Hall when it was remodeled in the 50's). My mom sanded down the maple counter tops. Lots got done.

Monday the lights and outlets will be in!! Dave continues to work on the beautiful trim work and I will continue to paint. The tile is done and it is really really really nice. Some of the carpet is even in. It is really coming together.

There is so much to do and only two weeks to do it in. All in good time. I wish I could have a magic wand to finish it all and get over there to get our boys all at once. But, it doesn't work like that. Soon enough we will have them in our arms for good.

Have a great day!
