What news will come following the adoption?

Every Christmas you will receive a recent photograph of the sponsored child together with a letter giving all the news about events and initiatives at the mission. Whosoever wishes to obtain more detailed information may contact the Association secretariat, who will forward any further news received from Adwa. We do ask for your understanding in this process, as it is not always easy to pass on information very quickly: the nuns of the order of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians are often busy with difficult and sometimes unexpected situations.
Unless there is an explicit request to the contrary on the part of the person sponsoring, we do not provide the child or his family with personal information concerning the sponsor. We have instituted this rule not only in order to respect the privacy of the person sponsoring but also to avoid possibly delicate situations such as being faced with the relatives of the adopted child, or the adopted child themselves, now grown up, at one’s doorstep, with very real expectations.
