Here's the scoop

My email to Ryan Hanlon generated a quick response. The story goes thus far: Rwanda has recently placed a new framework regarding out-of-country adoptions. After America World matches each family with their children, they have to send the match back to the Ministry for Approval. Prior to our dossier (and the other 2 that are at the same stage as us), it wasn't neccessary to send the match back to the Ministry before giving the families the referral. In other words, there is a new hoop to jump through and our 3 families are the first to jump. Sigh.


  1. Thanks for the update. Seems like that office is getting busier and busier.

  2. Thanks for the update. Ugghhh! I'm sorry you have to go through another hoop.

  3. Kara,
    Can you email me? I have some questions about what your POA/agency is telling you about your referral and the minister's involvement. I would appreciate it!!!
