Beginning July 15, 2010 IAN will only be accepting new families into the Ethiopia program who are open to children age two years and older. This new policy will not have any impact on families who are already a part of the program.
As all of you know, the combination fewer infant referrals coming out of Ethiopia and growing interest in the program has resulted in a much longer waiting list and longer wait times. It is our hope that this limit on new families will be temporary and we will again accept all families when the wait time is more reasonable.
Meanwhile, three new young boys will be placed on the waiting children list today. We currently have 10 boys waiting for homes. If you would like more information on these precious boys, please contact your coordinator.
