ETHIOPIA ADOPTION CLOSED TO INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION JANUARY 9, 2018
On January 9, 2018 the Ethiopian government made the decision to ban international adoption from Ethiopia. Unfortunately, this country that is about twice the size of Texas has an estimated 4.3 million orphans. The children are primarily orphaned due to poverty, and live in both government-run and privately established orphanages. The need is great in Ethiopia. There are many children in need of families, however many of them will not get the opportunity to be adopted. America World will pray that God will intervene in the lives of these orphans and cause officials there to reconsider their adoption ban. We ask that you join us in praying.
