In honor of Zinabu's 2 year "arrivalversary" I've been viewing video clips from David's trip to Ethiopia. I confess that it is very, very difficult for me to do. It makes me bawl like a baby every time. For different reasons... like the fact that Zinabu was still very much an Ethiopian and by coming to America he left so much behind. He spoke a different language, and he no longer remembers or cares much about Amharic. I also cry that he endured a lot of upheval and pain and loss for such a small guy. But look at that sweet face. He was so small... where has the time gone? I'll try to add more over the next few weeks. It is such an honor to have these glimpses of him on his native soil.

Oh he is precious. I love it. When is your actual 2nd anniversary? I recognized the driver from the video (his name is Solomon). Makes me miss Ethiopia somethin' fierce. Oh Zinabu! What a peanut!

David was in ET the last week of April 2007. How great that you remembered the driver's name!!!

Zinabu's smile...that kid is so stinkin' cute. And the joy on David's face and in his voice - love it!
