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.

First Prayers and Easter Eggs

Every night at dinner we pray for the meal. If we forget, Zamara will always remind us half way through dinner. Over the last few months she has been learning to pray by repeating what we say. We usually keep it simple and to the point.

Tonight we prayed and she repeated us as usual. Half way through dinner she said she wanted to pray again. So we stopped eating and folded our hands and she said her very first prayer all by herself!!!

"Dear Jesus, thank you for dinner. Amen"

It was soooo cute. Craig and I both got tears in our eyes.

After dinner we colored Easter eggs. It was a very fun night!

Have a great Easter everyone!

That is so cool that Zizi loves to pray.

I remember the first time Logan and Eric joined in a prayer or initiated a prayer and I had the same reaction and got teary eyed. Logan has been very into the Bible for about a year and loved his VeggieTales Bible so much that we had to buy a new one. Now, he is into Mike's HUGE Bible and yesterday sat with my while I read to him from Isaiah and Genesis. I have also heard him say "2nd Samuel" and then he gives the chapter and verse reference. Pretty cool for a kid with limited language.
