From CHI:

Dear Families,

Regarding the child abandonment cases in Addis Ababa, as we mentioned on yesterday on the conference call, we will be sending out a daily email to the families affected by this issue to let your know if we have found out anything new, or not.

An email from our representative today noted that the court ban on hearing these cases is still in place. It has apparently been lifted for one orphanage in Addis, however, but that is not 100% evident at this point, and the orphanage is not one of the orphanages that we work with. As mentioned on yesterday you may hear many things concerning this issue, as there are a lot of rumors going around. We’ll send out another update on tomorrow regarding any information that we might hear – or not hear.

  1. I'm wondering if this is where all the confusion is coming from. Perhaps AAA and Gladney work with the one orphanage that they are supposedly allowing cases to go through. This would certainly explain why they were told their ban was lifted, when it is still in place for everyone else.

  2. I had the same thought as you EthioPAP. It would be nice to know what orphanage that might be.....
