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.

On Saturday we went to our little local 4th of July Parade. It is the typical small town parade. Zamara had a great time. She loved every minute of it.

Today I got an email from a friend who had found Zamara on someone's web page. It is for a scrapbooking store in town called "About Memories and More". Someone had snapped a picture of Zizi and put it on the webpage. It is an amazing picture!

Here is the link to the site:

It was so nice to talk to you yesterday. Thanks for sharing this photo of Zizi. She is such a beautiful little girl and we miss her so much! I just love to hear Eric say "Baby Zizi" with his little lisp.

Hi Craig and Laura,

My name is Liz Lyons and I live in Phoenix. My family and I were recently in Flagstaff visiting my in-laws and, while in the store P.J. Chilcottage, we got into a conversation with a lovely girl whose name I have completely forgotten! She said that you were her high school youth leaders.

At any rate, we had our newest daughter with us who is Ethiopian and, I believe, Zamara's age. She's 15 months old.

I'd love to touch base with you and, if you'd like, get together sometime when we're up on Flagstaff!

If you'd like, you can email me privately at

Kind Regards,
