Advocacy Alert: Adoptive Parent Petition to the Joint Council on International Child Services

An adoptive mother of a child from Ethiopia has started a petition to the JCICS to reconsider their "Emergency Campaign" to the slowdown in adoption processing in Ethiopia.

The preamble for the petition states:

This is a response of adoptive parents, prospective adoptive parents, adoptees, and others with an interest and concern in the international adoption programs with Ethiopia to the formal statement issued by the Joint Council on International Children's Services (JCICS) on their web site on March 7, 2011 and their launch of a "Emergency Campaign" on their blog on March 8, 2011.

Adoptive and prospective adoptive parents who support ethical and transparent adoptions that are in the best interests of children may wish to read and sign the petition.

Ethics, Transparency, Support
~ What All Adoptions Deserve.
