Day 4 - Transition Home
Market in Mekele
We got to spend the morning and afternoon with our boy at the Transition Home and I don't have much to say about it other than he's awesome and we love him and we can't wait to bring him home. So I thought I'd share some postable pictures from the trip so far.
