We are going PINK- we are adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. We'll be sharing our journey to adopt our daughter!

And they are off!

 The team of 16 sponsors and friends left Saturday morning for Ethiopia!  With many bags packed full of care packages, sew important kits, balloons, balls and more.  Here is a photo of the some of the luggage packed containing 120 of the 166 care packages and 140 sew important kits.

At Dulles Airport the team saw the space shuttle on the tarmac. 

They arrived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia yesterday morning where they enjoyed a nap, some sight seeing and a traditional Ethiopia meal. 
The team left for Kombolcha early this morning.  They will meet with the children at our care point  this afternoon for soccer, games and a lot of hugs.  Tomorrow will start the 4 day camp program we have prepared for the children.  This will include handing out 166 care packages and a feast! 

Thank you for sending your care packages, donations and for praying.  We appreciate you all! 
The internet is not always available or reliable in Kombolcha so I probably will not have pictures of your children until the first week in May when the team returns.
Until then, please keep the team, the translators, and the children in your prayers.
