Photos for Ethiopia

A friend of mine will be going to Ethiopia in two weeks, so today I sorted through photos to find some for her to take. She will give them to extended family members of our children as well as to some of the staff who cared for them. The photos are a random collection, including some from our visit to Ethiopia and particularly our visit to K’s family. Her uncle is an Orthodox priest and you can see him along with his family standing in front of K’s former home. There are also two photos of W. in the family baptismal gown that has been worn by four generations of babies, including me. The photos span the time from our visit to Ethiopia in March to a few that I took today. I hope you enjoy them!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
