JCICS Response

The Joint Council on International Children’s Services (JCICS) has apparently taken the information released in the Australian news video seriously. Here is the statement recently released by JCICS:

September 18, 2009 – Joint Council is well aware of the grave issues relating to intercountry adoption in Ethiopia. Earlier this week, Joint Council initiated an immediate assessment of any possible violations by Adoption Service Providers. Pending review Joint Council will issue a public statement. Any action taken by Joint Council, based on its findings, will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

  1. Its go great to see JCICS immediately responding with an investigation. Hopefully, the allegations are baseless…but if something "hinky" is happening it's good to know they'll get to the bottom of it. It protects children & adoptive parents.Thanks for reporting this Debbie, you are really on top of this situation and we all appreciate it very much.
