Ethiopia Heritage and Culture Camp!!!

Who is coming?? Mari and I are signed up to attend this year’s Ethiopia Heritage and Culture Camp. It has been hosted on the West Coast for the last decade or so and this year, they have picked a venue on the East Coast….only about 30 minutes from my house!!! That is AMAZING considering that I live in a semi-rural area and definitely not anywhere close to any Ethiopian communities.

So, if you are free July 24-26 and want to learn about Ethiopian culture, come and enjoy the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. There will be cooking lessons, hair braiding, guest speakers, dancing groups, activities for the kids, etc. And the BEST part…meeting with other families. I have a new friend locally that is currently in the waiting process for an infant from Ethiopia and she and her husband will be attending. Ashton will also be coming and we can’t wait to meet him and his family…I get the feeling that he and Mari will be very much kindred spirits and I can’t wait to meet Mike and Jo.

Anyone else going? Put a comment on here and let me know! And it’s not just for adoptive families, it’s open to everyone…so come join us!
