"In recent months, we received a few concerns from parents about our Congo in-country coordinator and after hearing the concerns, we investigated her management of the orphanage. As a result of the investigation, our working relationship deteriorated and the coordinator resigned on May 28, 2012.
We are working closely with our in-country attorney to ensure everything is in order. However, due to these circumstances, please be aware that there may be unforeseen but temporary delays, and we will stay in constant communication to update you on how this may affect your particular adoption."
I don't know details beyond this point, but I do appreciate the fact that if our agency had evidence of misconduct and concerns, that they acted upon them. The kids there, one being our child, are first and foremost and I'm so glad that there are people who are looking out for their well-being. I came across this YouTube video on the OWAS orphanage page and was so excited to get a glimpse inside the place that our child calls home. Take a few minutes to look at it if you can. It was filmed in January of this year, this means that one of the kids seen could very well be ours!
I will update, as I get more information, but please just keep these kids and this orphanage in your prayers. I believe in the power of prayer!!!
