I am asking and pleading that you lift the international adoption program in Ethiopia up to our Lord.
Last week the Ethiopian Ministry of Women’s, Children's, and Youth Affairs announced their intention to reduce intercountry adoptions by 90% beginning March 10, 2011.
The Ministry’s plan for a dramatic reduction is apparently based on two primary issues;
1) the assumption that corruption in intercountry adoption is systemic and rampant and;
2) the Ministry’s resources should be focused on the children for whom intercountry adoption is not an option.
This new ruling will greatly impact families that are already matched with children but it will also be a devastating impact for ALL orphaned children in ET. Please pray for the Lord's perfect will to prevail...pray for wisdom for the Ethiopian law makers...pray for the babes who's lives will literally be changed forever by this new ruling....pray for any corruption with Ethiopian adoptions to subside so more children can be protected!
