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
your blog so others can use this resource too. Please link to this blog when ever you can and whenever you re-post things (or images) you have found here. Thanks!
The solid tabs are links to my other blogs for books and family. Check them out if you are interested.
Welcome to the journey!

Updates and Improvements on this blog

Well, if you have been here before you have noticed that I changed the look of the blog. :) All the same good info is here, I am working on making the numerous helpful posts more searchable. You can see that there are now two tab bars at the top of the page. Interestingly, I made the lower tab first and it links you to the posts on the topics listed on the tabs, it is still rather a lot to go through, as it just takes you to the long line of posts on that topic. This set of tabs may be changing. In the upper set of tabs I am working on getting things more broken down for you to find stuff you need. Right now, under the upper tab Adoption Resource Page you will find the posts linked to by where you are at in the process and many individual links to things like adoption paperwork, paperwork once you are home and health issues, etc. So, take a look there first and see what you can find.
Please let me know if links on this blog internally or to external sites are not working. Also, let me know if you have found a good source of information on any of these topics or a new topic you think I should include. As always, any more or new information you have on any of these topics, please comment in the comment section so others can know what you know too!
And, if you think this blog is useful, please put a link to it on your blog, on your forum, face book page, etc......You can do this just by posting a link or by putting my button on your blog side bar.  I intend for this to be helpful to many, so you can help get the word out about it. Many of you have referred others to this blog already. Thanks! Keep it up.


  1. Great job on reorganizing your great info! I might suggest that you change the color of the text in your posts...I'm having a hard time reading the black text on the dark brown background.


  2. Is it better now? Does it look ok with that light writing?
