  5. Hi there! I just wanted to drop you a quick note to first say how much I love your blog! Reading your words, seeing your pictures, listening to your spirit on your journey has changed my life for the better. I have been in the process of adoption from Russia for over three years now. Reading about journeys such as your have given me hope, encouragement, and energy to keep going. You have brought me to laughter and tears as I have followed your miracle. I thank you for taking the time to share.
    I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I have a blog that I have been writing marking my journey towards my daughters. Do you have any advise on how to bring my journey to more people? My only goal is to pass on some of the blessings I have been given by families like yours. To encourage, inspire, and educate others about the miracle and challenges of adoption. I have submitted my blog to the various search engines and Facebook etc. Do you have any other ideas? I so appreciate you time and thoughts. my blog is

    thanks so much for your time and your willingness to share,

  6. I just found your blog by Googling "Ethiopian New Year Raleigh NC." I was looking for information about the local Ethiopian community's New Years celebration.

    I thought I'd introduce myself! I'm Sarah and my husband and I have two children from Ethiopia. Our daughter is 13 and our son is 16. We've also got a crazy home-grown two year old.

    I hope all your children are doing well. Are you part of the Google group NC Families with Children from Ethiopia? We have periodic get togethers. Just wanted to touch base with you.
