Melkam Addis Amet means Happy New Year! Today, September 11 is New Year's Day in Ethiopia. Though the year is just now 2006 in Ethiopia. They have a 13 month calendar that they follow.
I love learning new things about where our daughter is coming from. I am so excited to go to Ethiopia and meet our daughter and learn even more about her birth country.
We are working hard to bring her home. We will be submitting our formal application in October/November and starting our homestudy. We are hoping to have our dossier finished by March/April. It takes time to complete everything, plus we are still working on paying for it all too.
We appreciate everyone's prayers about our adoption and ask that you continue to pray. Please be in prayer for our daughters family in Ethiopia and everything that is going on with them now and what they are going to go through with her, everyone that we will come in contact with about our adoption, and that we will be able to get the funds needed in a timely manner(I'm not a very patient person).
