Quick Update from Ethiopia
Their embassy appointment went very smoothly and Minte's visa was approved. They all spent most of the day at the children's home, hanging out with the kids. Wednesday night is New Year's Eve, when they do their traditional celebrations for the Holy Day tomorrow. They are planning on celebrating a tradition where fathers and sons burn bundles of dry sticks on New Year's Eve. They are hoping that Minte will be able to stay with them tonight. He is completely comfortable with his new family and it would be nice for him to stay with them tonight, since it is a special occasion. They wished eveyone a Happy New Year!
