Message from our agency only moments ago:
The director and staff at MOWA who made the recommendation/declaration to reduce the adoption reviews from 50 down to 5 were all fired as of yesterday. A new staff has been brought in to replace them.
While we don’t know for sure how this will impact the situation in Ethiopia, we are optimistic that this will be a positive step toward minimizing delays for the children needlessly waiting in the orphanages. Clearly new staff will need to be trained and there will be delays as they come up to speed on their roles, but in general it is good news!
As you can see information changes rapidly so please continue to hang in there over the coming days and weeks as we strive to find out more and the impact this may have on your adoptions.
Hanging in there!
