As we approach the final stretch in our adoption process (we travel the first week of October for court!!) I am painfully aware of the fact that we know ZERO Amharic.
Does anyone out there know how/much and what words will be the most helpful. Our daughter is just learning Amharic herself and is just 26 months old. Any advice or helpful hits regarding language and the barrier that we will face is welcomed and NEEDED.
So far, I have discovered this site and it looks pretty good!: Amharic Kids is a great resource for Ethiopian adoptive family’s. It was born out of a family’s adoption journey. It’s got great Ethiopian cultural and language (Amharic) information and helps as well as books, toys and other items related to Ethiopia and Ethiopian adoption.
