Bring Love In

Thank you so much for all the responses of prayer and best wishes for my trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!  

It was a delightful experience to work with the staff and the foster mothers in a organization called Bring Love In.  

I'm still processing all that I have learned, and what God is teaching me through my time away.  In the meantime, I thought I would just share a few images and memories of the trip.

A view down from our classroom into the village - a bit of a traffic jam!
An Ethiopian feast - all eaten with hands and pieces of the spongy fermented injera.
These mothers care for 6-7 children each in a single family home.  All of the children have been orphaned and traumatized, and they have come to these new homes to be with their "forever families."  While we were there, the mothers learned new information about trauma, recovery, attachment, and play therapy skills.
We also got an impromptu opportunity to lead a few workshops for the staff around leadership. They worked together to identify their group values, and did a few communication and team building activities. There's nothing like a few good laughs to bring a leadership team together!
I already know one concept from this experience that stands out to me - we need to TAKE CARE of the caretakers. It is vital that those of us who are caring for others take appropriate care of ourselves during times of stress, difficulty, and just every day life.
 

Are you a caretaker who is getting care of your own?
