I've been hearing rumors today that the ban has been lifted, but wanted to find confirmation before posting, so as to not get anyone's hopes up if false. I was just given this information, found here:
I am so pleased to be able to post that I just heard from our agency director, and THE COURT BAN ON ADOPTION HEARINGS FOR ORPHANS ABANDONED IN ADDIS HAS BEEN LIFTED! It’s over! All those affected families can expect to get new court dates assigned within the next few weeks, and they should not be long dates at all.
