we were gifted a book this holiday season from my aunt which is entitled 'Ethiopian Voices, Tsion's Life ' . The author and her husband themselves have adopted from Ethiopia. Quote " in response to the lack of Ethiopian resources for adoptive families "... she wrote her first book and now this one.

i have yet to read through all the pages but i can say so far that the photos, taken from a freelance photographer, are goegeous.

the book offers insight into the translation of Amharic words into English as it tells the journey/story of one girls life in Ethiopia.

on a cozy night i plan to cuddle up, take in the beautiful photos, learn some new words; while reading her story.
