The Latin America Program Director will be traveling to El Salvador January 22nd through the 24th to meet with government officials. Please pray for safe travels and productive, communicative meetings. The goal of the meetings is to further America World’s relationship with the government as well advocate for families and how to make this program the most beneficial for families and the children of El Salvador.
Prior to the holidays, America World has received its first referral of a 5 year old boy for the El Salvador program. For reasons due to confidentiality we are unable to disclose the reasons but the family referred the child did not accept this referral. America World will continue to work with the Office for Adoptions on this referral as well as for all families waiting to be matched with referrals. America World continues to advocate for this child as well as all of the children in El Salvador. In the new year we will continue to partner with other organizations to assist children in being paper-ready to be eligible for adoption.
