Adoption Alert Rwanda

Little Miracles International | Saturday, August 28, 2010 | Links to this post | 0 Comments
Sadly we were informed that the adoption situation concerning Rwanda Adoptions has changed abruptly.   No one is ever prepared for this when it happens.   We can only hope that the Rwanda Adoption Authorities will expedite this international adoption process for all families so soon things will begin to run smoothly.

Unfortunately there is no guarantee how long this transition could take, weeks?   Months?  Years?   We never know.   Everything is in the hands of the adoption authorities in Africa.

Were you considering Rwanda and now you don't know what to do?   We have waiting babies right now in our Ethiopia Adoption program and many openings in our pilot Uganda Adoption program.   We have just returned from Uganda and have met the most precious children!   Please consider one of these two countries in which LMI can assist you without any  lengthy waiting time.  We would love to talk to you about our programs and get you back on the right track soon.  Please call us at (806) 351-1100.


Here is the Announcement from the US State Department

August 27, 2010

Effective August 31, 2010,the Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion (MGFP) in Rwanda is temporally suspending all new applications for intercountry adoptions so they can prepare for accession to the Hague Convention.  

MGFP announced that applications from prospective adoption parents already received by Ministry or any Rwandan Embassy before the above mentioned date will be processed.  More information will be provided as updates are received from the U.S. Embassy in Rwanda

New Orphan Hosting Program

Little Miracles International | Saturday, August 28, 2010 | Links to this post | 0 Comments
Have you ever wanted to help an orphan child in a significant way?  Touch a child's life more personally but were not able to travel to the country?  The orphan hosting program just may be for your family!!

Hosting opportunities are quickly arriving for the Christmas Holidays!

The rewards for families hosting an orphan for a few weeks:
  • Seeing a child’s eyes when they experience something they have never seen before-something as simple as bubble bath or a vacuum cleaner or a clothes dryer.
  • Sharing special holiday events and summer activities and vacations!
  • Hearing those first English words, spoken with a darling accent, “sank oo.”
  • Giving them the attention they have craved for so long and done without and watching them bloom from it. I could go on and on about the positives of opening your heart to a needy child.
  • Best of all, keeping up a correspondence with the kids, sending them little cards and gifts. They write back. I know I have touched lives forever. In fact, one child wrote about her hosting experience: “Those were the best days of my life.”
  • Hosting to adopt, getting to know your child before you adopt!
  • Hosting just for the joy of hosting and providing a once in a lifetime experience to a child.
Please see our Hosting Program Page for more information about this program!
