We received two pieces of news yesterday form our adoption agency, one good and one not so good.

The not so good news is that  "Effective March 10, 2010 MOWA’s reduction in the number of cases heard did go into effect.  The State Department is still unsure how this will affect the process.  Monday the U.S. Embassy will meet with MOWA to discuss a possible solution and how the details of how this change will affect cases in process.   The State Department indicated that many Governmental and Non-Governmental Groups have proposed offers to provide MOWA with resources needed to continue operating at their usual pace.   MOWA’s needs are still unclear and a resolution has not yet been met."

As of right now, we don't know what all this means for our adoption.  We're continuing to pray that this ends up just being a little blurp in our adoption journey (and the journey of so many families in process to adopt from Ethiopia!), and that a resolution is found that will protect these children without keeping them from forever families.

The good news is that our Dossier has made all the stops that it needed to make in the US and is currently on its way to Ethiopia.  It's always nice to hear that things are progressing!
