We’re all packed and ready to go! We depart at 12:00 noon tomorrow, June 30th and arrive in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Thurday, July 1st at 7:00pm. Then we head to Gondar (Makai’s birth place), known as the Camelot of Africa (there are more castles per square mile in Gondar than any city in Europe). We will spend a couple days exploring Gondar and Lake Tana, then head back to Addis on July 4th. The agency will bring us Makai the afternoon of July 4th or the next morning, June 5th.

Check out all our luggage! Yes, 6 suitcases! Two suitcases are full of humanitarian aid items though . . . full of diapers, wipes, clothes and toys for the orphanages in Ethiopia. We also have a few care packages to deliver to kiddos of waiting families.

We will try and post updates and pictures while in Ethiopia, depending on internet access. If not, we’ll have lots to share when we return.
