Changes at MOWA

I have read the recent Voice Of America article regarding changes in how the Ministry of Womens Affairs (MOWA) will be processing adoption cases in Ethiopia. I have been in direct contact with my in country representative about the possible changes occurring at MOWA. According to our in country staff, MOWA has posted that they will limit their processing to five adoption cases per day, starting on March 10th. We do not know if this is a permanent change, or how it will affect our current and future families, if at all. Our in country representative is planning to meet with a member of MOWA to gather more information in the coming week. I want to encourage families not to worry, as we do not, as of yet, know the possible ramifications of this change

You are on top of it responding to this before it becomes a panic. Thanks for being upfront and proactive on the behalf of your families.
