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

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.
