We are constantly looking for new ways to connect to our daughter’s culture and weave it into the fabric of our lives.  I blogged about some of the ways we are exploring in my recent post.  http://ethiopianties.blogspot.com/2011/02/connections-to-ethiopia-grow-deeper.html
(link also on my profile).  I am very interested to learn what efforts others are undertaking in their families. I have learned so much from sharing experiences through this adoption journey and expect that will continue.
