After putting a halt on adoptions to the United States in May of 2017, the Ethiopian government passed a law in January 2018 that banned all international adoptions from Ethiopia.

The ban came amid concerns about child trafficking within the country – and fear that the children were not being cared for properly when adopted outside of the country.

International adoptions from Ethiopia peaked in 2010, but declined sharply in the years following.
