AUSTRALIAN GOV'T GIVES UP ON ETHIOPIAN CHILDREN AND CLOSES THE AUSTRALIAN ETHIOPIAN ADOPTION PROGRAM.
AUSTRALIAN AFRICAN CHILDREN'S AID & SUPPORT ASSOC.
Thursday June 28th 2012 brought devastating news to the AACASA family with the announcement that the Attorney General had closed the Ethiopian Adoption Program with immediate effect.
I and members of the AACASA Executive share the same emotions as the wider AACASA membership at this time, as dreams and hopes for the future have been shattered in this one decision.
We can, and must do something about this. It was the Attorney General who closed the program, and it is the Attorney General who can reverse this decision.
It is time for all of us, our families and our friends, to write and lobby members of Federal Parliament seeking that the decision be reversed. As a united voice we can stand together and make our desire known, and this may well lead to the program being reinstated.
If you would like help in arranging for letters to be written, or who to write to feel free to contact us at AACASA.
Be assured that the AACASA Executive is continuing to work to bring about a change in the Attorney General’s decision.
With best wishes
