Tuesday, Dec 8 in Ethiopia

Tuesday was to be a day of shopping. Instead we visited two additional locations. One was Green Light Ministries.

Green Light Ministries works with preschool children who are extremely vulnerable. The children would be left at home or playing on the streets if this FREE preschool was not open. They have a small room to house the children and a dangerous outside area for the children to play. Like so many locations we visited, Green Light Ministries does not have ongoing funding.

We were able to do some shopping at the post office. I was able to see Samuel one last time. He asked if I was coming back again. I said, yes and I would find him when I arrived in Addis.

Tuesday night we left Addis. Twenty-four hours later I arrived home. I have not stopped thinking about the children we met in Ethiopia.

Wow! I have been a visitor to your blog for a while now but had never officially said "hello". We are in the beginning stages of our E. adoption. I have really enjoyed reading about your recent travels! Thanks for sharing!

I've devoured the posts from ET but want to hear more!! Now that you've gone on this vision trip--have you figured out what to do? I'd love to hear what you are thinking now that you are home and processing the trip. Want to help, but feel...overwhelmed and helpless myself.

Seems like Henry came home much more than a year ago! Love both of those posts! Happy New Year!
