July, August, and September: During these months, we began doing research on different adoption agencies that facilitate adoption between Ethiopia and the US. There aren't a ton of agencies that do so, as US adoption from Ethiopia is relatively new. However, as time proceeds more agencies seem to be opening up programs... it's amazing how fast it is growing! The internet is such a priceless tool for families who want to adopt! We found out about agencies, the adoptions process "at-a-glance" and then eventually joined an online group of local (mid-atlantic area) families who have or are in the process of adopting from Ethiopia! We attended a potluck dinner with the group and got to meet many wonderful families and learn more about the process. Now, we just need to chose an adoption agency!
