They're home!

Scott and Temesgen returned from Ethiopia on Sunday, the 29th. I am finally getting a chance to blog a little, it is 2:30 am and I can't sleep:) Here are some photos from their week in Ethiopia. They had an amazing trip. Scott was able to learn lots of information about both Sabrina and Temesgen's birth families. This is so important so that they can know their history! Scott met many wonderful people!

First meeting. Scott brought Temesgen his first pair of crutches. He does not like them. He has a hard time getting his injured leg inside the crutch. It may not even be possible due to his scarred hip. So we are still motoring around on the ground. I am thankful that summer is almost over so that he is not having to deal with hot asphalt and concrete.

Coffee ceremony. Scott so loves the coffee in Ethiopia.
He said we must get an espresso machine!

Temesgen and Eyob, the director of KVI, the orphanage that both Sabrina and Temesgen were at. Sabrina was in Nazret and Temesgen was in Addis,
though he is originally from the Sodo region.

I was so excited when Scott said that he took over 300 pictures. If you know Scott you will not be surprised to hear that probably 200 of them are landscape and animal pictures:)
They were able to visit two or three national parks/lakes.

KVI going away party!
A good friend met us at the airport and took many photos but I haven't received them yet.
I'll try and post those soon.
