How to Use This Blog

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.

Welcome to the journey!

Hello from Ethiopia

So, you wonder what we have been doing. We have been playing a lot of kwaas. that is ball. The girls and I went to shoping yesterday, Dave stayed with the boys. We went to several different areas and bought many things. They mine silver here. One place was twice as expensive as the next. Too bad I did not know before. The drivers don't take you to places where you have to barter. Too bad. I like doing it. This week Dave will go out and I will stay wit;h; the boys. Tomorrow we visit Compassion but can not take the boys. This is the only time we will use a baby sitter. One of the girls here will watch them in the morning. We had this planned a long time ago, so did not know. Wed. we have the embassy appointmetn. Apparently it goes quickly but we still covet your prayers. Thank you.

Today Naty told Kedus that if he did not eat his dinner he would not go to america. Then Kedus sulked. This was very silly and we had help ensuring that this was not so. They are testing us too. today they each disobeyed purposfully and the item had to be taken away. but, they each had a melt down. This ha acctually happend a few times. but not too bad except once. We are grateful to have those around who speak Amharic>

We did get to go to church today... approved. It was great! It was an english service. There is a cafe called Denver Cafe in the same building. Their logo is the Denver Bronco logo. Very cool.

All for now.
