Hi Ann and Kirstie,
How exciting! Thanks for sharing your trip with us! The picture of you two captures your excitement.
I am guessing you are in Amsterdam now - at least it is about 12 hours since you left.
May God take you 2 safely to Ethiopia to Ahnya, answer all your prayers, keep you 3 healthy and surprise you with joy over and over again!
Love ya,
Auntie Erma
