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.

Getting ready to leave...

Hi everyone!

So this is it!!!! We are making our final preparations for our trip. It has been a stressful week. We have had a lot of trouble with our plane tickets, BUT I think it is worked out now. It seems like it has been one thing after another concerning this trip. Airline seats have been cancelled inexplicably, names have been misspelled, etc..., etc...

In talking with my mom and the other families going to pick up their children in Ethiopia, we all feel like there is some spiritual warfare going on concerning this trip. I am not the kind of person who goes looking for this kind of stuff, but it does seem like there is some opposition to us going to Ethiopia to pick up our daughter. We ask for your continued prayers as we make our final preparations for the trip.

We appreciate all of your support through all of this. WE COULD NOT HAVE MADE IT THROUGH ALL THIS WITHOUT ALL YOUR PRAYERS, LOVE, AND SUPPORT.

We are leaving Flagstaff on Friday morning as we had planned. This will probably be my last post until we reach Ethiopia. Check in on Monday or Tuesday. If we can get a good internet connection, I will post and also put some pictures up (maybe even video?!?).

Love, Laura
