“If I knew that there would be no contact, that I would end up wondering about my children every day, that the pain does not go away…” — Ethiopian mother, as told to social worker Kalkidan Alelign, EAC Vice President.

It is the vision and hope of EAC that every adoptee has access to their birth information and the opportunity for contact with their family of origin.

EAC is proud to announce that our program in Wolaitta Soddo is up and running. In the coming year, our Ethiopian caseworker will be providing education and outreach directly to families of adopted children, both collecting their information for our database and sharing adoptee/adoptive parent listings with them. In addition, EAC is hosting monthly discussion groups for Ethiopian families of adopted children to provide much needed social and emotional support. (more…)

Our Mission.

Ethiopian Adoption Connection (EAC) is a free, grassroots effort to reconnect family members separated by adoption. The organization’s goal is to assist adoptees, birth family members, and adoptive parents in making contact after adoption and educate them in maintaining individual long term contact. To achieve these goals, EAC provides an online database, utilizes its networks in the adoption community, and reaches out to communities in Ethiopia. EAC provides psychosocial and emotional support through educational information and discussion groups for Ethiopian families who have lost children to adoption.
