We are busy trying to pack and anticipate everything that we will need while in Addis. I have a 50lb duffel bag full of clothes for the orphanage that was donated by some very generous people. I also have a large rubbermaid tote that is also being filled up (thanks to the thoughtful gals at Dr. Dwyer's office!) Hannah's Hope really relies on donations from the states because things are so much cheaper here and alot better quality.
I have been reading some other blogs of families who have recently traveled. I am attempting to learn from their experiences and prepare myself for what may or may not happen.
Pray that I will have wisdom and compassion in every situation that I encounter while there. I also ask for your prayers when we meet A's birthmother, that God will give me the words to say.
