The craziness in our house has been ramped up recently.
The holiday season means a lot of fun, but a ton of traveling for us. We are so excited to spend time with both sides of our families.

It is going to be a pretty special trip.
I was originally in contact with … Keep Reading!!!
When doing keyword searches for Fayye Foundation my team discovered this: Space/Gods: A Mother and Child Reunion
Apparently, we are all a part of a conspiracy theory. Not just the cover, which I probably would not have taken as a conspiracy about me or Aram- but then it became personal (in an awesome way) when he started comparing Fayye Foundation to the Fringe Division!
For me, all of the excitement leading up to Christmas Day is what I love the most.
First, we have Halloween, which, for us, ends up being more about buying pumpkins and dressing up than anything else. It’s a costume party to kick off the season: fun.

These were my cats in college.
That would be “extended adoptive breastfeeding” going on. It was comforting to the younger one, so the older one put up with it. Very sweet and definitely funny. The little one weaned after a few months of doing this.… Keep Reading!!!
To put things into perspective I want to first start by showing you a photo of what kind of ignorance and hate awaited kindergarten student Ruby Bridges at school:
Ruby was the first black student at the formerly all white public school. Her family was taking a stand.

The Fayye Foundation has been going through some changes recently. After working on projects we reaffirmed that the Sidama region is definitely where we need to be right now, but we also came to two conclusions:
1. The Fayye Foundation mission needs to be more specific in order to make the biggest impact. Women – specifically mothers. We have realized the biggest impact we will have on family preservation is through the women in the area. Micro-lending, vocational training, … Keep Reading!!!
