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.

Backyard fun

Yesterday we went to the science museum in the morning and discovered that "mommy" needs to learn to explain things differently- as Habtamu now thinks Nana R has a moose in her house- instead of moose and Nana live in Maine-laugh. Upon arriving home- we still had about half of the day to figure out how to amuse ourselves (has time ever gone so slowly???) so I took "geneva's" back yard swimming pool out of the shed - and had the kids play in it. They LOVE water- and go "swimming" with us a few times a week- but not wanting to do that alone with them- we settled for the dogs pool. Then we taught Debritu what the correct end of the popsicle you eat- although I'm sure the stick takes pretty good too????
Have a great day- off to find ourselves some more entertaining moments today!

Oh my goodness, what cuteness! I'm taking notes! It all sounds like a wonderful whirlwind. What a change from the waiting days!

Really! What a change!

I remember those days - they are not easy!

We would often go into the city just to take a long bus ride. He loved the bus and that and a slice of pizza was destination enough.

Water is always good too!
