We are working on not getting too worked up over what is still believed to be speculation and rumors (oh, but it is so hard...)
The rumor mill started a few days before the following article came out, and the publication of the article has sent EVERYONE in the Ethiopian adoption world into a panic of sorts. Let me say, we are 1000% FOR ethical adoptions, and we want corruption rooted out of the process. HERE is the link to the article I referenced. Let me just say, from what I can tell...VOA is not necessarily the most reliable source for information, and our agency posted that *for now* everything published in it is speculation (I also take issue with a few things the author states as *fact* that are soooooooo not. i.e.-- we are not paying $20,000 to the ET government for our daughter...ugh).
I read a blog this morning by another family with another agency in process, and she puts all of this in the best perspective...Read that HERE
So, if you are the praying type (and even if you aren't), please cover the children in ET in prayer. We ask for their protection, and for those that truly need a home to get to that in the speediest possible manner. Thanks in advance.
