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.

Mi Casa est Su Casa

Have you ever met a bat with expensive taste? Apparently the bats in my town are "moving up" from the small bat houses and into my home. Two nights ago Y (our sitter and friend) was at our house and noticed a bat- she openned the front door and he flew out. Last night Denis saw another bat-but we couldn't locate him/her.

This afternoon I found one sleeping in the king size bed on the down comforter-laugh.

It was amazing- to be that close to a bat. His/her chest slowly going up and down as the animal breathed- asleep with the sunshine from the skylight upon it. It was a bit disturbed by the flash from the camera but otherwise was resting peacefully.

Denis picked him in gloves- (thank goodness he was working from home). We discussed for a while what we should do with this little fella. Should we wait until night time to move him outside, should we try to pick him up- should we just leave him, close the door and open the windows?? So many options- what should we do. If Denis wasn't home- I was going to leave him to continue resting in our bed-afraid I'd break his/her little bones trying to move it. They are so small.
Bonus- there won't be any mosquitos living in our home -laugh.
The bigger question remains a mystery- where are they coming and is it a large family or a small family that has moved in with us???? How strange...

That is so strange? What a sweet photo!

I love bats. I don't know why but I really do. That said I do not know what I would have done if I found one in one of our beds.
