Adama

The drive to Adama was incredible. I took so many pictures along the way, it was difficult choosing which ones to post. The landscapes, the contrasts, the diversity, everything was so amazing to see.
Here are a few shots of the city of Adama. We did not spend a lot of time around Adama. And admittedly, site seeing was the furthest thing from my mind as we arrived. I can hardly remember much of that day - I saved all my memories of that day for my time with Seth, which of course are etched in my heart and mind forever...
These pictures are as close to Seth's orphanage as I could get. The sign, the road, and the entrance gates...We hope to go back on our return trip and take some of the inside, so we have something to show Seth about where he lived in his first 18 months of life.

More to come...

yeah! Keep these posts coming! I'm about to post my Ethio trip as a year later celebration. The village we traveled to one day looked so much like these photos. Meski screamed so much I didn't' even think to take phtos. Plus I was so enthralled in what I was seeing. And, it wasn't a village that had anything to do with where my children had lived. These are photos to treasure.

Whoa, great photos Laura. I wish we had taken way more photos than we did. I wish I could go back to E. easily and sooner rather than later.
