Saturday10 December 2016

By honoring and celebrating your child’s beginnings, you will build a strong foundation for his or her future.

As adoptive parents, you know the importance of helping your child integrate and understand his or her early connections. Joining your child on a journey of discovery through Zimdina is one of the most meaningful experiences you could ever share. WHFC's Zimdina Post Adoption Program helps you and your child explore, honor and celebrate his or her Ethiopian heritage through intimate experiences – from personal letter exchanges to meaningful homeland visits. WHFC has been licensed in Ethiopia since 2003. Our Zimdina Program is well-received and widely supported throughout Ethiopia.
