It's unlikely I will update my blog while I'm away- but will hopefully return in October with lots of fun stories.
Hope you all have a Happy-Entutatash, Eid al-Fitr Eid and Meskel.
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 preliminary results are in for this fundraising effort. We have managed to directly affect approximately 20 students with our efforts.
(We might see a change or two when I am with the accountant but for now here's what I think the division of money it's going to look like).
20 students directly affected as follows:
15 unsponsored children are being kept in school this year at 1/2 rate.
5 children received their tuition from their existing sponsors (people who visited the school in past but did not sponsor through an organization sent me their money).
as an added bonus- a few people (I've heard 8-but have not confirmed) discovered the good work of COEEF and offered permanent sponsorship to some of the un-sponsored children at LemLem.
THANK YOU all! I will write more when I return home regarding the details.
