A letter from someone at our adoption agency. I went and looked at the pictures of the children and immediately fell in love with the very first child posted — a four year old boy. Unfortunately, we don’t really need any more four-year-old boys here at the Wright Household:
Hello! My name is Emily Beddingfield and I have a question for you. If you could forever change the life of a child, would you do it?
A few months ago, I took over Christian World Adoption’s Ethiopia Waiting Children Program. The Ethiopia Waiting Children’s program has been very successful, but the need remains great. Our photo list of waiting children can be sent to you. Just reply to this email and let me know you are interested in these precious children. You may also go to our website to request access: http://www.cwa.org/ethiopia-waitingkids.htm.
Since I started in this position, 27 waiting children have been accepted by families, they are working diligently to bring them home! Yet, there remain over 150 children who still wait for a forever family, and the numbers keep growing.
I am also seeking ways to spread the word about these waiting children. Please share with all those you know who might consider adopting a waiting child. Maybe your church has an adoption ministry that would share our information, or your local radio station offers free public service spots. I am open to your ideas and suggestions as to how to get the word out to as many people as possible. Together, we can find homes for so many of these precious children.
God is allowing CWA to do many exciting things in Ethiopia right now! We are beginning to build Acacia Village, a complex outside of Addis Ababa, the capitol city. Acacia Village will include an orphanage/care home, pregnancy crisis center, school, clinic, and a place where our adoptive parents can stay when they travel to pick up their children.

To read personal stories of families who have adopted from Ethiopia through CWA, please visit our Adoption Stories webpage: http://www.cwa.org/adoption_stories/adoptstoriesmain.htm.
Thank you for your time, for your prayers, and I look forward to hearing from you! Together, we can make a difference in the lives of so many.
“I tell you the truth. What you did for even the smallest of these people you did for me.”
