There is an Amharic saying that we learned while living in Ethiopia;  Kes Beh Kes, which translates in English to “bit by bit”.  Its part of a longer saying that we never quite could master in Amharic which means “bit by bit the egg learns to walk”.  An often appropriate saying for the challenging work of helping orphans.

Today we want to celebrate one small step towards getting the project rolling.  Our applications for both the Nonprofit organization and the tax exempt status were sent off!  I know, I know, its not a huge step or anything… Bit by bit though, bit by bit.

They tell us that we can expect the Nonprofit to be completed in the next 10-12 days and that as soon as that is finished all we need is a bank account set up in order to start processing donations for the project!  How exciting is that?!?
