CNN recently came to our Ethiopia Dance Class as part of their program spotlighting Sonya and all the amazing things she does for the Ethiopian adoptive and Refugee community. Her niece, Habi, and friend Brook teach the Saturday dance class. We love this Saturday routine, both Mawerdi and us, it provides us endless joy to watch Mawerdi practice these traditional dances, interact with her other Ethiopian friends, learn the Amharic language. This class also provides us with the opportunity as parents to learn the Amharic alphabet and dances ourselves.
We can't say it enough, we are so blessed to have these opportunities to connect with other adoptive and Ethiopian families. From the start we valued the importance and priority of keeping the Ethiopian culture alive in our home and family, however we never envisioned how lucky we truly would be!
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
