For a week or so now I have been aware of a rumored slow down in the Ethiopia adoption program. By slow down, we're talking about a 90% reduction in adoptions. Well, the US State Department has issued a statement and it looks like it's really happening. This is a tragic situation as it means that thousands of children will be left institutionalized for much longer periods of time. It means that many families in the process of waiting for an Ethiopian adoption will wait even longer. Please pray for the waiting children, for the waiting parents, and for the health of the Ethiopian adoption program.
