(Borkena) “Ethiopian Adoption” has now a yahoo listing group. From the description, it seems the yahoo group is intended for Adopting parents and prospective parents with Children from Ethiopia. The group claims that the purpose is to share information for about Ethiopian culture and to network with adopting families.
The group has strict regulation of membership; “..reference to religion/god needs a warning in the subject line. We have people on this list from all faiths and try very hard to be welcoming to all.” Of course this is something that triggers question as to whether there is such thing as culture without direct or indirect relation to religion. Even more fundamental question is whether Adoption is purely an altruistic enterprise or not?
