“Wel come to Hadero”

My departure for Ethiopia is just two days away. I’m getting ready, and Mr. Silly Pants and I accept there are some things for which one can never actually ‘be ready.’

Blueberry is making sense of the road ahead, anticipating his own upcoming travel to Ethiopia. He’s also processing the road already traveled. It helps to have oodles and oodles of context for him — a gift I can give on account of recently having been to Ethiopia.

His questions are sweet and tender. His mind wraps around our honest answers and soaks them in with the heart of a trusting child. These are cherished moments. We are humbled by our son’s beauty, and by our bountiful life when measured in love.

I plan to fill many more books. 2 days. 2 days. 2 days……
