Just six years old, Kalkidane has been with us three years—half her life.  Her father is no longer living, and illness and poverty prevent her mother from caring for her. 

 Entering first grade soon, Kalkidane is thriving at Victory Christian School.  She enjoys languages and is studying both her native Amharic language and English.  A very sweet girl who is a little shy, she is nevertheless always happy. 

 Our children take to music very naturally, learning many Christian songs in school.  Kalkidane considers singing her best talent.  She loves girly things like painted fingernails and hair ornaments.  She still loves her dolls, and her favorite outdoor activity is swinging on the playset with the other girls.
