We are the Ducommuns! There are 4 of us now-Craig, Laura, Zamara, and now Mahashavah, our 1 year old son. We adopted Zamara from Ethiopia in 2008. 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.

No News

Hello everyone! I haven't posted recently because we don't have anything new to share about the adoption. We have been waiting for over a month now to hear about our court date in Ethiopia. Our daughter has one more week to go on her 8-week waiting period in Ethiopia. Some of our friends who received their referrals on the same day we did have gotten their court dates--June 10th. We are so excited for them, but are a little confused on why we didn't get our court date for the same day. Hopefully we will hear from our agency soon.

Last week we received some new pictures of our daughter from Ethiopia. She has gained some weight and looks very healthy and happy. We sent her a little book with pictures of us and the family. They took a picture of her with the book. The book looks so big on her lap! It was cool to see her with something that we had sent her. I guess it made the whole thing feel more real.

Last week we also received a short video of our daughter taken by the Harbaugh family when they were in Ethiopia last month. It was only a few seconds long, but it was unbelievable to get to see "live" video of our baby. My heart aches to be with her and to hold her in my arms. I could just kiss those chubby little cheeks for hours on end...

Please be in prayer for a court date to be assigned to us soon.

Have a great day!

We're praying. I think your little one has to pass the 60 days before they can even ask for a court date. I would have been nice to know this kind of thing when you got your referral, I'm sure. :-/

Love & Prayers, Susan
