Ethiopia Adoption: The number of children adopted from Ethiopia has grown nearly three times since 2001.


Ethiopia Adoption: The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is a developing country in East Africa comprised of 9 states and 2 city administrations (Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa).

In the US, a growing number of children are available for Ethiopian Adoption. For the calendar year 2005, 440 children were adopted. There are a limited number of adoption agencies licensed to facilitate adoptions in Ethiopia. An updated list may be found on the U.S. state department web site: http://travel.state.gov/family/adoption/country/country_380.html

There are very few restrictions on prospective adoptive parents looking into Ethiopia Adoption  placed by the government. Prospective parents must be 25 to 55 years old and married couples and singles are eligible to adopt. There are some restrictions relating to the age of the prospective parent and what age child they are allowed to adopt.

There are a wide range of children available of all ages in Ethiopia Adoption. Siblings and special needs children are also available and there is a need for adoptive parents for both boys and girls.

Ethiopia, like many countries, allows children to be escorted by agency representatives to meet their new parents. Travel is not a requirement.

Ongoing political unrest in Ethiopia has resulted in the U. S. State Department issuing travel precautions for areas of Ethiopia which makes the escort option appealing to many looking in to Ethiopia Adoption.
