End of December Ethiopia Referrals

The Ethiopia program is excited to announce 4 children were referred in December!  Below is a list of these children and the DTE dates of the families.  Please keep in mind some of these referrals may be sibling sets, children with special needs, or older children.

Age and Gender of Child

DTE Date

 2 Females 4-7 years

4/8/2011, 7/1/2011

 2 Females 12-15 years

7/1/2011, Paperchasing

Infant age range: Approximately 0-18 months

Toddler age range: Approximately 19-47 months

Due to the recent trends of received referrals, the wait time for males is 10-16 months and the wait time for females is 11-18 months.  While all families are currently receiving referrals within these timeframes, the overall trend is that the wait time is increasing.  America World will continue to keep families up to date on any potential changes to the wait time.

Unfortunately, there are still many delays in paperwork processing in Ethiopia.  The wait for these types of documents to be complete is unknown as we are often dependent on other entities in Ethiopia to produce them.  We will continue to keep families updated monthly on the children we are able to refer.

We thank God for the children He has matched with families this month.
