Colombia Assignments and Ethiopia Referrals End Long Waits


Children's Hope International's Ethiopia Program was pleased to announce the referral of 5 children Tuesday, October 28, and one child on Monday, October 27.

The children are 3 girls and 3 boys ranging in age from 6 months to 6 years old. More specifically, the children are 6 months, 11 months, 13 months, 20 months, 21 months and 6 years old. These referral families waited between 3 to 7 months for their referrals after submitting their adoption paperwork.

Unfortunately no sibling groups were included with these referrals. Families requesting siblings from Ethiopia seem to be waiting the longest at this time in the Ethiopia Program.


Children's Hope Colombia Program has had an exciting week, with 7 families receiving assignments! These children are:

Siblings, 9 and 4 years old, from Medellin
Girl, 6 years old, for a Colombian family in Tunja
3 siblings, 8, 7 and 5 years old, from Florencia
Baby girl, 11 months, for a Colombian family in Ibague
Toddler girl, 20 months, for a Colombian family in Ibague
Infant boy from Pasto
Infant girl from a private orphanage in Colombia
Congratulations to all of these families and a special congratulations to those that had been waiting for 3+ years for their assignment of an infant!
