Group Description

This list is for families with adopted children from Ethiopia. Information about Ethiopian culture, orphanages can be shared & families can network with each other at all stages of one's adoption journey.

Members can be prospective parents regardless of their country of origin. We have many members for whom English is a second language. Be sensitive to this when discussing adoption rules & please specify your country when you do.

Although large, this list is (generally - some flame wars) a supportive place where people have felt comfortable to discuss the often emotional journey adoption, the joys & frustrations, their fears and hopes. We also discuss hard topics like corruption, attachment issues, post adoption depression... Unfortunately there have been some flame wars (there as of March 14 there are over 6200 people on this list). Please try to ignore the flame wars (the delete button is handy).

After you apply (in the message box please state why you are applying for group membership or you request will be automatically denied), you will receive a set of our guidelines when approved. You do NOT need to reply to the list owner when you receive the guidelines. Please note that any reference to religion/god needs a warning in the subject line. We have people on this list from all faiths and try very hard to be welcoming to all.

Please do not use a grouply.com e-mail address because grouply creates a mirror site to this group. People who try to join with a grouply e-mail address will be denied.

It is recommended that you choose digest mode for message delivery as the is a high volume list.


***ADOPTION AGENCY WORKERS PAID OR VOLUNTEER*** when you join you need to include your full name and agency you work/volunteer for. You can not use this list to solicit clients or raise money for your agency or your orphanage. ALL posts must include your agency affiliation.
