A book that has really touched my heart is "There is no me without you" by Melissa Fay Greene. I have raised money for Ethiopian orphans for years. After reading this book I wanted to adopt from Ethiopia. I still do...but God would have to move Juergen and the German government for this to happen. I hear I'm too old to adopt from Ethiopia at least this is what I've heard. Anyway, I encourage you to read this amazing book. I also found Melissa Fay Greene’s blog. HERE is an unofficial guide to Ethiopian adoption.
And here are the official rules for Ethiopian adoption. I could not adopt a baby from Ethiopia, but I could adopt an older child according to these rules.
