The Ethiopia program is excited to announce the referrals matched with families in the month of November! 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.

The wait time for families requesting healthy male or female children is now 24-30 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 still the main cause of the increasing wait times. The clearance process is intensive and contingent on the governmental bodies in Ethiopia. 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 November and will soon be with their forever families. Thank you for your continued prayers for these children and the country of Ethiopia.
