I’m always on the lookout for resources for families interested in or involved in adopting internationally and from Ethiopia specifically. There seem to be an almost unlimited number of websites, videos and blogs devoted to orphans and adopting – but I’m quite often delighted to stumble onto a new one! Please check these out (by clicking on the underlined link) and then be sure to add your own ‘finds’ in the comments you can leave!

Leverage – @ How Good Is God? blog. This is about increasing God’s position in our own sphere of influence. And it’s so good!

Amharic Kids – This website was created by a family who had adopted a baby from Ethiopia but couldn’t find books or toys related to Ethiopian culture, which they wanted to build into their daughter’s life. It’s a resource for games, books, music, dvd’s, greeting cards, Amharic phrase books, calendars, maps & flags!

I Care About Orphans – This is Focus On The Family’s ministry in support of adoption and orphan care. They offer many resources and information helpful to anyone with a heart for orphans.

Ethio-American Family Services – This is a non-profit organization with a mission to educate, empower and enrich the lives of Ethiopian orphans and their adoptive families.

24-7 Prayer Ethiopia – This website gives direction for praying for the people of Ethiopia. (content is not up to date but still relevant!)

Hope for Orphans – Here you’ll find information on establishing an orphans ministry at your church.

African Adoption Fellowship blog – An awesome fellowship group of several families in the Nashville area who have adopted children from Africa. Wouldn’t this be a great idea for families living near each other who have adopted from Ethiopia?
