Melkam Addis Amet! (Happy New Year!)

September 11 is referred to as Enkutatash, the Ethiopian New Year! By the Ethiopian calendar, tomorrow will mark the first day of 2002. The best part is that this marks the end of the rainy season where pretty much everything shuts down (including the court systems needed to conduction adoptions) for months at a time and is said to mark "new beginnings". Hopefully this New Year will bring us closer to our "baby E's."
