Positive News from Ethiopia (reposted from adoption forum)
We are thrilled to share positive news from Ethiopia. Earlier today
Minister Zenebu, along with other high level MOWCYA officials, met with
agency network representatives. In this meeting it was clearly expressed
from Minister Zenebu that she does not plan to work to stop adoptions,
but desires to focus on eliminating bad practice in Ethiopian adoptions
and focus on good practice. She stated that both MOWCYA and the
Ethiopian Government do not plan to shut down adoptions within Ethiopia.
She encouraged agencies to continue their work as normal.
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. We are
seeing several regions issuing clearances for children to be adopted and
are hopeful more will start soon.
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.
