West Sands Adoptions thanks our wonderful Northern Utah families for opening up their hearts and homes to four Ethiopian officials who visited in late June, 2016. It was a joyous and successful visit in which children were able to see these important guests from their country. Many children did native dances, played instruments, and otherwise entertained the distinguished guests with their giggles and playfulness. The feelings of warmth and love were overwhelming. The dignitaries talked with the children and had a wonderful time seeing how well they are thriving in their new homes. Because of the generosity and hospitality of these wonderful adoptive families and their children, the meetings, gatherings, and visit with our Ethiopian officials went very well. Thank you everyone who participated in these important events.
