6 Months on the wait list

So we have made it to the 6 month mark and are anxious to see our daughter's photo in the next month or two. While we are excited about the adoption, we are also saddened by the unbelievable malnutrition that exists in Ethiopia. If you click on the photo below it will take you to a website where a wonderful man named Tom Davis has started a fundraising project to collect formula for the infants who are specifically at America World's transition house. Children are brought from the orphanage to the transition house once they have been referred to a family. Ava will be staying at this transition house for several months because our court date will probably be in October or November. The need for formula is so urgent! Although it would be great if you felt a desire to donate to the fund, my main purpose for including the website is so that you can really understand how dire the situation is there. We have met Duni (Ethiopia coorinator for America World) and we know she is doing everything in her power to saves these children's lives. She wrote a moving letter on the website.
