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.
And, please link to The Wayfarer Adoption Blog by putting my button on

The solid tabs are links to my other blogs for books and family. Check them out if you are interested.
Welcome to the journey!

Daddy MOmmy sister!

WOW! today the boys said Daddy Mommy sister! Daddy, Daddy daddy is very fun to say. Very cool. We are learing a lot of Amharic. Many things. We have extreamely happy boys. I will try to tell you a little about each. Kedus, I think he is really 3 almost 4. his real birthday is near Christmas which is Jan 7 here. We will see. But, his sister is quite sure he is not 4. He colors in the lines, he choses colors deliberately. He is silly and willful. but he obeys very well w hen he udnerstands. he likes to show off and is quite good a soccer. he stops, catches and kicks adn he NEVER misses. He can kick to a certain place purposfully and well. He can spin the ball with his hand. he runs fast. He props his little foot up on the ball and puts his hand on his hip and looks at you sideways like "i am really something!" He has a little wimper when he does not ge t his way adn he pouts. but, that is not working on mommy daddy and he is starting to get that. He is
small at 2T and sometimes a 3T but 3 is large on him. He will be a a3 soon. He is left handed. he sings alot of the time. he is delightlfu.
Both boys are comming to mommy daddy for help and to show us things and to cuddle up in the morining. Today The girls and i went out to shop. The boys aked where is mommy? And were happy to have us home. They both love kwaass! Ball adn Makinas! cars. They are both potty trained, but wear a pull up at night. They can eat with a fork and spoon! They both talk constantly. like we know whta they are sying. :)
Nati (that is what he is called) is quieter in some ways and not such a show off. He is super cuddly and likes to snuggle in the moring. HE colors like a younger kid, he stays in the lines but it is more of a scribble, he is sttarting to select cloras on purpose. He also is small. size 2T or some 3. he needs 3 in the shirt fo his big tummy, That boy can eat for sure. He is delightful and cute as can be. he is righ t handed and loves soccer. he kicks hard and can spin the ball. he uses the fork well but does somehow get food eveywhere, jigs is going to love him. he love milk. everything he eats.

They were well cared for at Sele Enat. very loved and well fed and everything. they had a little shool in the moring for counting and bible songs adn stories.

i need to try to send this now. maybe it will work.
more later.
sorry fo the bad typing this is a stiff board and if i take time to correct it i loose the connection. !
