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.

The Library and Amharic

The Library Rocks. Discovering the library again has been so much fun. There are so many books on Ethiopia and when you order them online- you just pick them up. There's no wandering through the aisles hoping to find something you want to read. It's Great!

Also- found this link on Amharic from the FSI: (Foreign Service Institute non gov't language course). It's the best I've found so far.

Mamma Mia

Went to see Mamma Mia while at a conference in Vegas last week. I Loved it - only it had to do with a girl who wants to find her biological dad. Man there are adoption themes everywhere.

It was the first time I was that close to California with my biological father's information. I found myself wanting to go to his address and meet him. Not sure what I am going to do with that thought just yet. Do I drop it or act on it? I didn't go- I finished the conference and came home-but I'm not sure the "desire" has gone away just yet.

Although- when I think 6 hour flight- I think EU- I do not think Cali... Will I ever think Cali? Hmmmm....
