I have tears in my eyes as I type this.
BDO has just updated their site and it is fantastic news. The 3 Imagine delegates who have just returned from Ethiopia attained all goals set forth prior to their departure 12 days ago.
To say this is anything less than miraculous would be an understatement.
I'll share the biggies...
MOWA reassured the group that they are pleased and looking forward to continue working with Imagine Adoption.
Two orphanages have re-signed with the new Imagine. One of those two orphanages is comprised of 3 orphanages. The contracts stretch a 2 year period. They anticipate referrals starting sooner than originally anticipated!!
There are ongoing negotiations with two other orphanages than those mentioned above.
Relationships have been re-established with the three key staff members working in Ethiopia.
A new transition home has been established for children who [will be] referred, after acceptance of referral is made. It is located just around the corner from the hospital where children receive medical care.
