Remain Encouraged! Ethiopia Adoptions Update

Recently the Ministry of Women’s Children and Youth Affairs in Ethiopia gave notice that effective March 10th they would begin to approve 5 adoption cases a day, resulting in a decrease from the current amount. Following this notice, advocacy and meetings were held at all levels to discuss these changes and advocate for the children of Ethiopia. Children's Hope's Ethiopia staff has been a part of these meetings and will continue to be so in the near future. The conversations being held have been positive and your Children's Hope Ethiopia Team is encouraged.

At this time, Children's Hope has not had any cases affected by these changes but acknowledge that this can change. We will continue to remain positive in light of these conversations and will continue to update our families with the latest information as we receive confirmation. Stay encouraged!
