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.

I called Ethiopia this morning- and chatted with a good friend to see how everyone is. People are finishing up on their college final exams and since it's rainy - they are all working a lot right now- waiting for the nice weather to come back. I can't wait to call my host sister- a little later this week. I just learned that Rocky the family dog Died - and it's made me very sad. She died while giving birth to puppies- none of them survived. Female dogs are not as desirable as male dogs (so I've been told) because of the fact that they sometimes get out of the compounds and can become pregnant. (For many there's just not the extra money to spay or neuter your pet that it's not popular practice).
