The days on the long road of one families Ethiopian Adoption

This blog started out as a way to record the twists, turns, highs and lows in my families journey to adopt siblings from Ethiopia. Now our children are home and we have just finished celebrating our first year as a family.

I'm Kimberly (or Fendesha), an adventurous person who aspires to be a vagabond- but for now- I spend all of my free time travelling and my down time thinking of travelling. I'm a mom of 3 (the oldest being my gorgeous canine companion), a IT project manager, and on occasion I find myself the primary writer of this blog.

Happy Reading and thank you for stopping by.

List of Books -Culture or Adoption Related

Planned for rest of 2007:
  • Adoption Nation: How the Adoption Revolution Is Transforming America
  • I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla: Raising Healthy Black and Biracial Children in a Race-Conscious World (almost finished)
  • Inside Transracial Adoption
  • Adoption Is a Family Affair! What Relatives and Friends Must Know (elementary-too infertility based-but only reference I can find for families). Can somebody please not assume we are infertile in all of our readings). It would be nice if a book or two assumed it was a first choice - surprise surprise-it is to some of us!
  • What to Expect the Toddler Years (tired of adoption focused reading- what's are real toddler issues- seems like we should know that too)
  • What to Expect the First Year (ditto- time to learn about "what's normal"...)
  • Ethiopia, 4th: The Bradt Travel Guide (Whoooooo Hoooo... let's travel baby)
  • Surrender or Starve: Travels in Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia and Eritrea
