Updated at the bottom.

I first heard this story last night on the news. An adoption agency in Ontario has gone bankrupt and there are now dozens of Canadian families and Ethiopian children in limbo. One story I read said that the transitional home for the Ethiopian children is curently housing 50 or more children awaiting visas and documentation, and they only have food and supplies to last about a week.

When I think about those adoptive parents... financially drained, emotionally spent, and worried for their children. My heart breaks for them.

Sending prayers and hope-filled thoughts.

Update: Our community has not escaped being affected by this. Please stop by and offer Andrea and Darryl support. And sign the petition.
