The Boys Are Back in Town!

Mark and Mackenzie are back from Ethiopia after a very adventurous trip that included visiting Addis Ababa, Adama (Nazret), Metahara, Lalibela, Axum, and Debra Damo.  They were even able to spend six hours in Amsterdam on the way home and visit the Anne Frank Museum.  Mark’s parents are from Holland, so it was really nice for Mackenzie to be able to see a little bit of Holland.

Their time in Ethiopia was pretty amazing and they were able to do some of the things that were on Mark’s list of adventures as well as bring donations to FAYA Orphanage and visit KVI Orphanage and spend time with the kids and speak with some of the caregivers.  On a note of huge importance for our family, Mark was able to obtain Elijah’s baptism certificate, which will hopefully help us to legally change his age here in Canada.  I will post further about the age discrepancy for both of our Ethiopian-born children later this week.

I am trying to get back into a new routine now that they are home but now can get back to regular blogging and blog stalking!  So, welcome home boys!
