End of March Ethiopia Referrals

The Ethiopia program is excited to announce 13 children were referred in March!  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

2/24/2012, paper-chasing

 1 Male 13-15 years


Infant age range: Approximately 0-18 months

Toddler age range: Approximately 19-47 months

The wait time for families requesting male or female children is now 18-24 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 length of time it is currently taking for children to receive their necessary clearances is the main cause of the increasing wait times.  If clearances for children continue to be processed at the current rate, wait times could increase again in the future.  We will continue to keep families up to date on the wait time and referrals issued each month.

We are excited for the children who were referred in March and will soon be with their forever families.  Thank you for your continued prayers for these children and the country of Ethiopia.
