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.

Well we just had a BIG spring snow storm. WOW! Olivia and I enjoyed a beautiful day at the zoo with her class Thursday. By the time we got back to school it was spitting snow and rain already. It was foggy and snowing when we got home. The "snow" at first was just this pellet stuff. Like the polymer beads in stuffed toys but like styrofoam. Weird. Then it really just dumped all night. Friday we had a lull and then more snow and all night. No school on Friday. The kids did get in some sledding! It snowed all day Sat. except for one hour in the afternoon. More outside time. Much of the night as well. Today we looked it over. We had a 3.5 foot drift in front of the garage and the trucks were completely drifted in and under. We had several other large drifts in various places as well. Mostly I think we got about 2. 5 feet if it just fell and did not melt with compaction so fast. Of course the wind picked up yesterday and that drifted and blew away some into other places. It is really pretty. Today it was hot. We were snowed in and could not get out in time for chruch. We spent about 3-4 hours doing snow removal. That is with two of us and a snow blower. The kids sledded and our neighbor boys came over to sled saying we have the best lot for it with the hills. :) The more the merrier. I think they had fun. The snow has melted so much today that when I just let Jigs out a few minuites ago there is only about a foot left in places and less in others. WOW! It will all be gone by Tuesday I bet. Yesterday Dave worked on trim in the house and fell on the steps outside and hurt his back. He is hurting today and lying low. Our friends could not come today due to illness and our snow problem. They will hopefully come next week. Anyway, we are glad for the BIG drink for the plants and trees and grass. Hoping for a green spring and summer. Weather forcasts say rain next weekend. Let's hope for it!
