New Flower Guest House

This is where Sister and I will be staying in Ethiopia --

Here is our itinerary.

Saturday, August 7th we leave Houston Continental at 6:50 p.m. We arrive in Dubai on August 8th 6:45 p.m.

We spend the night in Dubai and fly to Addis Ababa on August 9th at 8:25 a.m. We arrive there at 11:30 a.m., which should give us enough time to go see Anna. We then spend all the time we can with her throughout this week, while we wait for the embassy appointment on August 12. Before then, I'd like to get a driver to drive us through some of the markets in Addis Ababa.

We leave Addis Ababa on Saturday, August 14th at 2:30 (I think). I'm not quite sure of the connection timing in Dubai, but we arrive in Houston on Sunday, August 15th at 4:30 p.m.

Anna's first monogrammed shirt!

Sweet Kara W. gave me tons of goodies for little Anna, including this adorable t-shirt. I love how Anna's name looks and the capital A behind it.
I will post pictures of the other treats, which include clothes for me to take to the orphanage.
I heart you, Kara.

Anna Banana

A sweet person who just returned from Ethiopia (with her and her hubby's precious baby girl) kindly sent me some pictures of Anna.

Look at this poor angel! Sad and eating her banana. Bless her heart.
