Ethiopia was the country that we kept coming back to, and it was the only country where we met all of the requirements. This was the first thing that truly led us to Ethiopia. As we prayed and searched about Ethiopia, we discovered many new things. According to UNICEF, Ethiopia has the one of largest population of orphans in the world. 4.6 million is the estimated amount of how many orphans are currently living in Ethiopia. That is almost 12 times the population of the city of St.Louis! Out of the 4.6 million, 800,000 have been orphaned from HIV/AIDS.
