What I can can you

Many of you have been worried that our agency is the one that has gone bankrupt. It isn't. We are so thankful, but our hearts are so saddened that this has happened to others who are waiting to become parents. Adoption is such a hard process to begin with, and then with this's just awful. Some one commented to me..."Well, at least these parents haven't actually met their children, it's not like they have actually bonded yet...they are just out money." I didn't even know what to say. Really, not bonded? Read this post, and then tell me you have to meet in order to bond. Or read this post of someone who has been waiting and doesn't have a referral yet. This process is so hard, and to have it taken away like this is devastating. To those of you who are in this nightmare, I am so sorry. I don't even know what to say or do.

What I can do is to ask you who follow my blog is to go to this site and sign this petition. The petition will help the parents bring their children home. OR

I would ask that if you feel you want to help further, you could go to this site and donate to help the caregivers and children who are waiting for their families to come and pick them up. (They have set up an account with paypal and it's really quick and easy.) Any amount would help. Even $5 goes along way for them in Ethiopia.

It's all I can do, other than pray for peace for these families and that God will help them thru this hard time.

Hi Krista. Our own family has been phoning in a panic. Thank goodness CAFAC is still going strong. I have good friends here where I live who are affected by this. I don't know if you watched the Global news report with this family in it. That's my friend. We are both at the same stage and have had each other to lean on during the wait and now her world has come crashing down. I'm sure you know a lot of families through connections that are suffering. Thank you for advocating for them! Good luck!

Oh and PS. You can NEVER go overboard on the African least in my opinion!

This is so terribly sad. I can't imagine what those families are going through. I know if it had happened to us, are dreams of starting a family would be completely shattered. So many families save every dime, second mortgage their house, even sell their possessions just to make this dream possible. Not to mention the fact that in their hearts they had a child waiting for them, that will now never be theirs. Thank you for telling their stories. I hadn't heard about this until now. How could this happen?

hey there Krista,
I think i had told you that my brother and sister-in-law are adopting from Ethiopia....they are apart of this whole bankruptcy nightmare. Sorry I haven't checked your blog in so long. I am so glad to hear you and Adam are not with the same agency!!! You guys have been waiting so would have broken my heart to hear you would have to start all over again.
I say decorate the nursury!!! Why wait? You'll have so many things to get in order and plan once you get your referal that I say brighten your spirits right now and go ahead!!
I hope all else is going well in your life.
Love Jodi
