From Adoption Ark:

Dear Clients in the Ethiopia Program,

I received several emails this morning asking for verification of the rumor about the ban being lifted on the abandonment cases in Addis Ababa.

Of course I immediately called our in country rep and luckily I got through after only 5 attempts!

He said that he went to the court this morning and spoke with the judge’s secretary about this rumor.

There is NO official lift on the ban of abandonment cases. The investigation is still in process.

Regarding our cases to be heard on May 22 and May 27:

Our in country rep has prepared a written statement for the judge.

He will go tomorrow with his written statement and present our situation to the judge.

He will explain that the investigation has to do with 5 orphanages and that our children are not from those orphanages.

He hopes that the judge will consider this and either hear the cases scheduled for tomorrow or least assign a new date a few weeks out.

We plan to speak on the phone again tomorrow and of course I will provide an update at the earliest possible moment.
