" I just have to live in Ethiopia"

Anna never ceases to amaze me. Today she was talking about a paper she had to write about the best country to live in. The teacher had them write about America and there were some wonderful things written about our freedoms here. Then I was telling Anna how blessed we are and she said, " Well, when I grow -up I just have to live in Ethiopia!" In a more determined voice, " I NEED to live in Addis when I am big!" I asked her why and she so surprised me on this one..."The donkeys of course!" Then she said she will adopt 10 children who are 14 who will not be adoptable due to their age when she is there too.

The mind of a child. She does remind me she wants to be a nurse or doctor to help the people in Ethiopia. She has also added that she will be a writer so she can share what she sees. This is what I am used to hearing from her so I so enjoyed hearing her thinking today:)

I just came across your blog. I live in SE Portland, OR. My husband and I are pregnant with our second child but strongly desire to adopt our next child from Ethiopia, preferably deaf/hard of hearing. We have a huge passion for Africa and wish to go over there some day, Lord willing. I would love to continue to hear about your experiences with your adoption and Ethiopia.
