Last week, Sabah and I got to have dinner at Mudai (a GREAT Ethiopian restaurant here in Portland) with the Zeltins. I met Corey and Lisa in Ethiopia when we were both picking up our girls. They live in Bend and were in town for the weekend and we decided to re-unite the girls. Here is a sweet sweet moment that Lisa was able to capture on film of Sabah and Weredesh:
Oh my gosh...it just makes my heart smile every time I watch this.
Sabah's list of Ethiopian friends just keeps growing and growing. Her Toukoul buddies that she's met live and in person now includes:
Jeremiah and Josiah Blog
Ruby and Roman Blog
Alec and Haven Blog
And not to forget little Zaela, who isn't from Toukoul, but is actually her first Ethiopian friend she met after coming home to the U.S.
We are lucky to have so many of these friends living in Portland and thankful for airplanes that allow us to visit those in California and Arizona. What a blessing for these children to keep this special connection with each other.
