It is 7,500 miles from here to Ethiopia. In this land once ruled by kings I search for two special children with eyes like mine. Join me as I take this long walk down the path of international adoption. There are sure to be twist and turns, some hills and some valleys, some laughter and some tears before I reach the destination.

Who's Name is it Anyway?
In adoption naming children may be one of the most important things that we get to do. If we do it could be the most important thing that the child loses. I came across this article today where a judge in Australia has ruled that parents do not have the right to change the names of their adopted children.
I also know that many of the parents adopting from Ethiopia are constantly looking for the meaning of Ethiopian names. I found an online resource that may help you discover what your child's name means.
