August Ethiopia Referrals
August 30, 2013

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

Below is a list of the children referred this month and the DTE dates of the families with whom they were matched. Please keep in mind some of these referrals may be sibling sets or children with special needs.               

   Age and Gender of Child

DTE Date

1 Female toddler


1 Female 4-7 years


1 Female 8-12 years


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.
