if you all are as sick of seeing our living room as anna and i are, then please take a look at some brand new pictures of vast, open spaces in a far away country. these pictures are from an album of mine i took in ethiopia while anna was puking her guts out during her first trimester with judah and multiple bouts of food poisoning. i felt kind of guilty leaving her in the room and exploring villages on my own, but she pretty much made me and i'm very thankful for that. it was sad though, returning to our dank rooms in the middle of nowhere, seeing her sweating and shivering under a dim, hanging light bulb, in cots on a cement floor. i swear i felt like i was in the english patient more than once.
these 11 photos are for all those adoptive families getting reading to travel to ethiopia. jouir de la beauté.
