Addis Ababa and the children

Upon my stay in the capitol city of Ethiopia, I met a young man named Abdissa. Though his manner and intellect lead you to believe he's well into his thirties, this man was a mere 27 years old. For several years Abdissa went to the streets several times a week bringing the street children tea and cookies. He eventually became friends with many of them and a foe to some. He was know as the protestant man, taking about a man named Jesus, and sharing hope with the orphans. His heart screamed for compassion over these children, and after a few years, he decided to take his love into action adopting his first child from the streets. He is now the Children's Home Director and is in care of 25 children age 2-17. You can tell just how much the children love him like a father and he respects them just the same. It's a beautiful place. If you ever get the chance to go to Ethiopia, stop by to hang out and play with the kids and tell them Stephanie says hi
