I was one of hte families that had an adoption fail in Uganda. I was devastated. However, it was not AFAA fault, Cheryl's fault, nor coudl the agency or Cheryl have seen or prevented the situation in Uganda. It is a sad truth that there are corrupt people who do terrible things - in this case a corrupt man in Uganda and a few American families created this heartbreak, not AFAA or Cheryl. Cheryl and AFAA regularly told all of us families what was going on in Africa. It was made VERY clear from the beginning that like all international adoptions there were things beyond the control of the agency or Cheryl. MANY failed international adoptions through other agencies never offer a transfer in country either nad families have to start over. Tireless, thankless and dedicated to the children - that is my description of Cheryl and AFAA. Please do NOT read some of the negative criticisms from some families and take them as fact - to be honest some of them caused some of this heartbreak and made it clear they were not "in this" for the children. AFAA is 100% committed to the children of Africa and has been for decades.
