I hate to say it, but I saw it coming.

Ethiopia has just passed a law that is cutting international adoptions by 90%!! Due to the popularity, the high number of children being adopted out, and some unethical adoptions occurring, it is stepping back and reevaluating the process.

I am saddened for the families who are waiting and especially the children who are waiting that will have to wait longer, but I can’t help but be a little relieved. Adoption should never be about finding children for families, but rather families for children.
