this morning emily and i went to ahope, ayele was unable to drive us because he had been at the hospital with his aunt all night. elias took us, so it was nice to see him and say good-bye to him. he also gave us information about his ministry he does in addis. maybe we can help out 🙂 i was impressed by the facility at ahope. the children are well cared for there and they seem to have a great ratio of nannies per child. i then said my good-bye to emily, i only cried a little. it feels like leaving family. then had the driver to take me to ethiopian airlines to pick up our tickets. there was a long line, but i made my way to a supervisor 🙂 i then went back to the house and we ordered pizza for lunch and we’ve been packing all afternoon. we are happy that ayele will be taking us to the airport, so we can say good-bye to him as well. it will be sad to say good-bye to the staff here at the New Flower also–they’ve become our second family.
See you in AMERICA tomorrow!
