One heart, divided between two continents

On Friday we had to say good bye to Kef.  It is amazing how fast time flies.  Time seemed to stand still until after court and then it was over in the blink of an eye.  As much as my heart is broken there is great comfort in knowing the nannies and the Sister are amazing.  They give those children so much love and treat them as their own.  We were so blessed in how many amazing people we have met on our journey.  Hareg runs the guest house and travels by two buses and over an hour of time to arrive at the guest house each morning to make our stay as comfortable as possible.  The cook made three meals a day and each one was superb.  The greatest treat was our AA driver Estachu.  Like Hareg it took him two taxis and around an hour a day one way to reach us.  He went out of his way to answer all of our questions, try to teach us some Amarhic and made us feel at home.  We arrived in Ethiopia as strangers but have been blessed to leave with friends and so much love.  We can't wait until we can go back.  Even though the Ethiopian people have a rough life, with little of the things we take for granted, they are such a happy and thankful people.
