Our son is also from Ethiopia and we are hoping to bring him home soon. We live Flagstaff Arizona. We are so glad you found us. Take a look around and don't forget to leave us a message.

Laura's Business Time

Hi everyone!

Laura's business (see link in "links we like" to the left) is going crazy! She has just recently started selling rag dolls on her site and has sold around 6 dolls in the last two weeks. Very cool. She does such a great job with them and I (Craig) even help her with them a little. Her website is becoming a nice little additional income source. I am so proud of her. I have always thought she was so talented and that the rest of the world was just too dense to understand her. It seems like everyone is finally seeing the light! In other news that could be filed under the folder titled "Good News" is the fact that a major book publisher contacted and chose two of Laura's quilts for an upcoming book of theirs focusing on baby quilts. The publisher is called "Lark Books" and their link can be found to the left in "links we like". They are actually a huge publisher on crafting books and occupy tons of space in pretty much every Barnes and Noble store. We are so excited for the book to come out and for Laura's great work to get more exposure!

The most important news is unfortunately no news as far as our referral is concerned. Still waiting.... Please continue to keep us in your prayers! Most days we just feel like we are going a little crazy with a disorder known as "waiting".

Thanks for reading and see you next time.

I am going to go and check to see if is already taken. If not that is absolutley our new blog address!
