Agency suggestions for older, single woman seeking siblings

I am an older single woman seeking to adopt siblings from Ethiopia. I am looking for recommendations for agencies that work there. Bonus points for information from anyone with experience as a single and/or older parent or who has adopted siblings.


what is older? 50? 60? 70?

what are Ethiopia’s rules re age?

Ethiopia does not generally like to adopt to single women.  But if a child is older they will allow it. Or if siblings.  I’d look thru the rainbow agency section and this will tell you all the agencies that work there. Also if you look thru their waiting children from Ethiopia, you will get an idea of which agencies and children might be possible to single women, and what age you and they will need to be.

Tree of Life Adoption Agency in Washington does Ethiopian adoptians.  Many agencies discourage single women trying to adopt from Ethiopian because they have so many waiting Caucasian couples.
