Call for Action!

We received the following message from our Agency, as is posted on the Joint Council on International Children's Services (JCICS).  They have started a petition to the Ethiopian Ministry of Women, Children, and Youth (MoWCY) to reconsider their position on the reduction of Ethiopian adoptions.   Please consider visiting the site or signing the petition.

Joint Council: Campaign for Ethiopian Children

What You Can Do:

1) Sign the petition to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Meles Zenawi – and pass it on!

2) Have you adopted from Ethiopia? Please send us up to 3 photos and 50 words or less with what you would like the Ministry to know about your child – we’ll compile the information and send a book to the Ministry of Woman’s Affairs. Send your photos and stories to by Sunday, March 12, 2011 to be included. Please note that sending photos and stories gives Joint Council unrestricted right to use the information you provide.

3) Share…Please send this Call to Action to family members, other adoptive parents, and everyone you know! Post, forward and share your adoption stories via Facebook, Twitter, and blogs.
