Yesterday we traveled to Findlay for a 5 hour training required by the state of Ohio. Our social worker is amazing! She also happens to work for our adoption agency, America World. That's been very helpful.
The best part of the day was meeting another couple from east Ohio also adopting from Ethiopia through America World. We're approximately the same age, and they also have two girls just a few years younger than ours. They're probably a few months behind us in the adoption process. At some point our families are going to try to meet them at the Empress Taytu, an Ethiopian restaurant in Cleveland.
And a couple from right here in Toledo stumbled across this blogsite. They too are in the process of adopting from Ethiopia. They have two biological boys and have adopted a little girl from Ukraine. Up to this point we've corresponded via email but hope to meet face to face in the near future.
