This week's theme is FRIENDS. Which is perfect because that's exactly what I was planning to blog about anyhow.
Today we met the wonderful Rebekke and her darling little one Solly, who is 9 months old and also from Ethiopia. Rebekke lives fairly close by and arrived in Addis to meet Solly right as I was leaving with Isa. We've been in contact since before either of us had referrals and finally got to meet IRL. We met at the zoo (after a harrowing 40 minute drive around the parking lot desperate to find a spot-blech) and had an amazing time hanging out. Isa B showed off all her tricks to charm the group, which included Solly's grandma "Gam" and for a bit, dad Brad.
So far we are 2 for 2 when it comes to meeting online friends!!!
Here is Isa holding hands with her newest boyfriend
And here are a few other friends:
Isa & Cassidy

And last, but certainly not least, another photo of Isa & Elsa
(as they both enjoy a tasty snack of "shoe"... mmmmmm...)
