The Ethiopia program is excited to announce that 3 referrals
were matched with a family in the month of August!

Please keep the following in mind when reviewing the
chart above:

  • Infant age range: Approximately 0-18 months
  • Toddler age range: Approximately 19-47 months

We’re grateful for God’s blessing of these referrals and for
your continued prayers over the Ethiopia program.

As was shared in the August Ethiopia program conference
call, the wait time for families
requesting healthy male or female children is now 30-36 months from DTE. This is a change from the wait time shared in
our last blog post. 
The current wait
time is based on recent history and is subject to change.

The increased wait time is mostly the result of the lengthy
clearance and paperwork process for a child to be legally able to be adopted in
Ethiopia. America World will continue to
keep families up to date on the wait time and referrals issued each month.
