On April 21, 2017 a temporary suspension of all intercountry adoptions from Ethiopia was put into place by the Ethiopian government. Many America World families and families across the United States have been impacted by this suspension. There has been little information given as to why or how long this will last. America World and the U.S. State Department are strongly advocating for the suspension to be lifted.
Would you please join us in prayer? Please pray for Ethiopia, we need a resolution to be found and for pending adoptions cases to be completed.
For more information about what is going on in Ethiopia we would encourage you to follow the Department of State’s adoption notices posted here: https://travel.state.gov/content/adoptionsabroad/en/country-information/alerts-and-notices.html
