Little Addis

We have a booming community of Ethiopian kids in southern Maine, coastal NH, and greater Boston.

Last weekend we went to a beach house in Rye, NH where several different families brought together a total of 12 adopted Ethiopians, 7 of whom lived at the orphanage the same time as our girls did.

It was amazing to watch them recognize each other and start laughing and playing together. What was planned to be a 3 hour event ran into 5 hours as nobody wanted to be the first to leave.

We did nail painting and braids; crafts and cookies; tag, hide and seek, and duckduckgoose.

A total blast for both us and the girls. It felt like we were back at Horizon House.
