Today I have had to face the reality that my adoption for Baby Boy King #2 may not happen. Apparently Ethiopia may be changing some of its adoption rules. One of them being that a child cannot have a living birth parent. MOWA wrote the required letter to complete the adoption with a negative statement about a living birthparent. The judge who heard his case understood the letter as a denial from MOWA. Tomorrow I will find out if my in-country rep can convince the judge to overturn the original decision. If not, this beautiful baby boy will grow up in an Ethiopian orphanage. How can this be fair?
Babies are the worst kind of birds.
