Dear IAN Families,
The Department of State posted an update about the new travel policy. This will begin on May 9th, 2010. Every family with a court date after May 9th will be effected by this new rule and should plan on traveling twice. One parent can travel with a POA to the court date. If your family chooses to do this, you will receive an IR-4 visa instead of the IR-3 visa. This means that your child will not become a citizen upon entry to the US. The list of orphanages that had their licenses revolked are listed. IAN is not affiliated with any of these orphanages. You can read the update at http://adoption.state.gov/news/ethiopia.html.
