Kenya Adoption Update - Back on Track



GOOD NEWS!

Typically the NAC meets once a month (usually the 3rd Wednesday), but due to the backlog of many pending cases, the committee has announced that they will meet twice monthly until they can consider all pending applications and either approve the applications, or request additional information to make a final determination on the approval of the case.


The meetings have been set for February 11 and 25 and March 11 and 25th. Scheduling a second meeting in April will be determined after these meetings, depending on the number of pending files.

EVEN BETTER NEWS!

We were hearing of approvals arriving as early as February 14th, after the 11th meeting! This is unheard of! Hopefully this is a new trend, as we have always typically seen results trickle in around 2-3 wks after the meeting. 

I cannot tell you how relieved I am that things are back on track, I honestly was quite concerned about the future of this program!


Looking forward to hearing about some more approvals this week! Fingers crossed for all of you!

Here is the Half Year Report from LAN, that you may find interesting.

I am so glad you continue to update us! I am still crossing my fingers that Kenya will reduce the residency requirement by a few months but maybe that is just wishful thinking.

Gypsymama - You should consider looking into Zambia. 3 month residency... very appealing! ;)
