PEAR just posted a new DOS Country Specific Alert. Usually the alerts from the US DOS are pretty vague in my opinion. This one seems to be very specific and very telling that the problems in Ethiopia aren’t being dealt with at all. Note the alert provides statistics of the number of cases in recent months that are clearly not approvable, evidence of unethical recruitment among other things. They also ask adoptive parents to come forward if they have concerns.
Anyone else not really surprised?
