Awe, This was the first day that I met Bereket, actually this was my first day at BCI! & Come to think of it, she was the first child I held. I remember I was walking towards her classroom and she seen me through the doorway and she just stop, then she shifted her weight to one of her hips and looked me up and down. As she analyzed me I stopped, hoping this unfamiliar face wouldn’t startle this tiny little girl. I thought she was a was like 3. Then all of a sudden she came running and laughing towards me with her arms wide open!
I was like AWEEEE:
I scooped her up & we took a couple “usies”! & We’ve been kicking it ever since!
A couple times we were able to take a few cuties to the zoo themed park & then out to lunch! It was really fun, but one thing Ethiopia can use more of is parks! I only seen like two`the whole time I was there. And they weren’t free.

Dear Ethiopia.....Rosa Daniel
I almost forgot.
Wow, as I was going through my photos and videos from Ethiopia. I forgot upload Rosa’s video!
Kelkias (one of BCI’s members) recorded a video of Genet & Rosa Daniel (BCI recipients) with a little message to their sponsors. He used his phone (please excuse the quality) and we just added English subtitles (…Sorry for the timing on those as well.)
Also here is the video in HD: http://vimeo.com/109386717
Here is also trailer to Emabet & Bereket’s “A Child Who Had No Name”. I have been working hard and almost finished with part one: http://vimeo.com/102977389
Guess Who I talk to!
YES! These two cuties! Very early morning on Saturday I was able to talk to Emabet & Bereket! They are doing really great, enjoying Ethiopia.
It was so great being able to see them (video calling) and hearing their voices. I missed them so much!!!
I asked Bereket is she still mad at me because I left, and she quickly responded “YES!” *also made sassy face*, but then quickly I got over it when I told her about the dress I got her. Emabet seems to be feeling it to, broke my heart when she said “You’ve been gone for two years! When you came, you brought excitement into my life. Now that you left its boring…..After you left I cried a lot”.
Yea….by that point I almost broke down…
BUT the exciting news is I will able to talk to them again this weekend! Hopefully I can talk to them on a regular basis, I miss them! My work doesn’t stop because my internship is over.
I am trying to work on a few things for them….so stay tuned(:
Here is some more photos from our date night:
