February 23, 2020 – Close of Service (COS)

So much has happened since my last post….We celebrated the holidays here in the States and we welcomed a new baby to our family on February 17th.  I have to share some pictures of this sweet baby and her proud big brother. I cant wait for Caitlin to meet her – Aella (‘ayla’) Marie.

Caitlin celebrated the holiday with friends. She spent time in Addis during the Christmas holiday and epiphany. The new volunteers have also arrived and she has had some meetings and training with the new group. I am so glad we are on this end of Caitlin’s service. She has a project – building a chicken coop – that she is hoping to complete before the end of her service. Here’s a picture of last box she received from us. She also received a box from her grandparents so I am sure this was a good day.

Caitlin’s COS should be around March 26!!! So excited! She is planning some travel before she returns home so we will see when she will actually arrive home. I, personally, can not wait to have her back on American soil!!
