News from Ethiopia

An update from Ethiopia, in the words of the stand-in mommy:

Rachel and Dan have been checking in from Ethiopia and I am happy to report that all is well! The visa situation appears to have been sorted through (finally) and they have picked up Evangeline. Evie will be staying with them all week at their guesthouse. Sounds like the people in Ethiopia have been very friendly and kind, the city beautiful with lots of flowers and Evangeline has been smiling and happy.

Jude and Indi have been talking about Evangeline and Ethiopia a lot. Indi has already made plans to dress up her new sister as a frog or elephant and Jude has explained to me the geography of Ethiopia and the approximate flight distance to get there.

What an exciting time! We look forward to their return!

  10. Hooray! I can confirm that Evie is a happy little one too! I spoke with one of the woman who takes care of the families at the guest house and she told me that Evangeline is laughing and smiling all of the time! My heart was warmed and I believe that Rachel will experience the deep bonding she was hoping for! YAY!! So happy for them!
