We all slept really well last night. We got ready for the day, ate breakfast, and visited with the "L" family for awhile. Then we called Hannah's Hope to ask Almaz about a rash that we have noticed all over Opiyew's body. She told us that Wass would come pick us up so they could take a look at it. When we got to HH, the nurse wasn't sure exactly what the rash was, so Wass took Chris and Opi to the doctor's office while I stayed at HH with Uchan. At one point, Uchan lost sight of me; I was outside where all the babies were lying in the sun, and he thought that I had gone inside. I found him upstairs all by himself, and he was sobbing! He thought that I had left him, too, after he saw Chris and Opi leave. Poor little guy - I can't imagine what must be running through these little boys' heads! It tore at my heart; I tried to stick very close to him after that, and assure him (as best I could in my very limited Amharic) that I would never leave him.
We ate lunch and took naps, and then played with the boys. They also loved looking out the windows on our balcony, and would call out to the people on the street below.
All week, Chris has been telling the boys, "Na," which means "come here." Tonight, long after the boys were asleep, he wanted to read the Bible with me. I was in the bedroom and he was in the living room. I heard him say, "Erica, na!" Ummmm........really. Did you just tell me to "Na?" Excuse me? :-)
Tomorrow is our last day in Ethiopia! Gary and Peggy Ifft, our missionary friends from Ziway, are going to be in the city tomorrow and are planning to meet us for dinner before we head back to the airport.
