We have also received confirmation from the press that the NAC was disbanded on September 30th. You can read about it here. What does this mean? I really don't know. They have left us hanging in this article, and information to/from agencies is not very forthcoming.
We have also received word about an East African Adoption Conference in Kenya, in November. You can read about it here. The focus of the conference appears to be raising awareness about local (domestic) adoption and mainstreaming the process. This is great news... but again, where does that leave international adoptions - I don't know.
I am hopeful however, that upcoming changes could be very advantageous to the process. We all know they could easily shorten the residency with a few simple changes.
For those who are on the edge of their seats waiting to hear news, please consider joining our 'Adopt Kenya' Facebook group. For confidentiality reasons, it is only for Moms currently in process (or previously) adopting from Kenya. This means you must be home study approved, and working on your dossier at the very least.
