We are thrilled to share positive news from Ethiopia. Earlier today MOWCYA officials met with agency network representatives. In this meeting it was clearly expressed that the MOWCYA does not plan to work to stop adoptions, but desires to focus on eliminating bad practice in Ethiopian adoptions and focus on good practice. It was expressed during the meeting they do not plan to shut down adoptions within Ethiopia.
We know this news comes as relief for many adoptive families in process. Our agency will continue to work on behalf of Ethiopia’s orphans and vulnerable children to place them into Christian homes. We expect MOWCYA will likely hold more meetings in the weeks to come and will continue to keep families updated with any new information.
America World is in full support of improvements to uphold the most ethical practices in adoption. We care deeply about adoptions operating with integrity and transparency, and will continue to support MOWCYA in their efforts to implement better parameters around adoption processes and safeguards against fraudulent practice.
We give thanks to God for this positive news, and are grateful for many of you that joined us to fast and pray on behalf of orphans in Ethiopia.
