Urgent Need for Help with Ethiopian Adoption

We have received notice the the Ministry of Women's affairs in Ethiopia has a movement in place that would decrease the amount of adoptions processed by up to 90%, leaving thousands of children a year in orphanages instead of joining a loving family; children like Johnny. I am heartbroken to hear this and pray that it does not come to pass.

So, what can we do about this?

1.) The Joint Council has launched an emergency campaign for the children of Ethiopia. Please sign the petition today by clicking on the word "petition". You can read more about the proposed changes and the emergency campaign on this blog. The petition will be sent to Ethiopia on this Friday so don't put off signing.

2.) Forward this information onto friends and family. The more voices that are heard, the better chance we have to make change.

3.) Pray for all of the children and families affected by this change.

Thank you for your help!
