10 Referrals in June!



According to our adoption agency's blog (awaablog.org) there were 10 children referred to families during the month of June. Two of those children are our sons - ages 2 & 7 - and we are anxious to have them home with us. This is a milestone for our agency as referrals seemed to be painstakingly slow for many months. With the recent partnership with a second orphanage in Addis Ababa, the referrals have been moving along at a good pace. Our agency representative mentioned during a recent conference call that 10 referrals per month was a good goal - and that goal has been achieved this month! Ultimately, this means more children matched up with their forever families!!

So far this year, 32 children from Ethiopia have come home with adoptive families through our agency (AWAA). There have been 35 referrals since January. Go AWAA!
