Today's email from the placement agency:We are writing today to report on information we have received regarding the meeting that took place yesterday between MOWCYA staff and the adoption agency network in Ethiopia. We are hearing that MOWCYA remains committed to processing, in the normal time frame, those cases with court dates already scheduled. MOWCYA is currently discussing its long term policy for processing future adoption cases. Until a final decision is made, we expect there will be a limitation on the number of cases being processed daily.
Please know that a strong advocacy effort continues with the support of many organizations, including US Department of State, foreign Embassies and governments, child welfare groups and adoption agencies. We will keep families informed as we continue to learn more about the impact these changes may have on the process. Other reliable sources of information include the US Department of State (http://adoption.state.gov/) and Joint Council on International Children’s Services (http://www.jointcouncil.org/).
