We Say Farewell But Not Goodbye

We say farewell not goodbye

Parents and children shared a final lunch at the guesthouse before heading to the airport to board planes bound for destination cities scattered all over the US. Our friend Karin introduced me to the idea of spoons as mealtime toys. Brilliant. Here, the little friends pose for a final picture together.

I can’t imagine what it will be like for these babies to leave everything they’ve known. Yet again.

I will tell Tariku that he has landed in the right place. We are a family with Gypsy souls and wherever we set up our camp is home. We traveled a long way to find each other and we’re not about to stop moving now. Next Shriner adventure…the tour bus. Maybe at some of the stops along the next tour, Tariku will find friends we met in Ethiopia waiting to greet us.
