Just wanted to direct your attention to a few newish resources and articles regarding the MOWCYA slowdown.
The actual notice from MOWCYA regarding the slow down -original statement. This is a great thing to read for yourself. It is clear and well laid out with thought and intention.
Department of State notice regarding a statement issued by MOWCYA more recently affirming the slow down for ethical integrity. While Ethiopia has not stated at this time the actual number it will be reviewing per day, the US Embassy feels that 5 is what can be expected.
An interesting article written as opinion by an Ethiopian national on this topic.
With this in mind, I have had some families note that with their agency families who have received referrals after this proclamation are still receiving court dates for as early as May. It will be interesting to see how things adjust to the new normal.
