Many of you have contacted IAN concerned about the possibility that entry visas will no longer be available upon arrival at Bole Airport in Addis. We have checked with our in-country staff, with the state department and with the embassy in Addis, and there is no cause for concern. Entrance visas WILL continue to be available at Bole airport for arriving passengers.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

IAN has recently been given an opportunity to work with a very special little girl. Baby E was born at a hospital in Mekelle, Ethiopia, with medical needs beyond what any hospital in her region can handle.
IAN is honored to be entrusted with this special girl. Every effort is being made to find Baby E an adoptive family. Until that family is found IAN is committed to providing Baby E with the best possible care.
IAN’s commitment to Baby E is something to be taken seriously, including the responsibility to protect her privacy. There are many IAN families who have come to love her and want to follow along with her journey and to partner with IAN in caring for her.
For this reason, there is now a running update specifically to share Baby E’s story. It is on this website, however, is hidden from view without the correct log in information. You will need to register to follow along. To register simply send a request to:
An email will be sent to you with the instructions on how to log into the website in order to view and follow Baby E’s story.
There is also a place created here for those of you who would like to contribute to her care. Baby E will need extensive medical care, physical therapy, travel support, and more. All donations to Baby E are fully tax deductible, and will go directly to her care.
We are excited to announce the referral acceptance of a very adorable 4 year old boy! Congratulations to the happy family!
There is no list movement.
