I adopted my son from Ethiopia through AFAA starting in 2004-1/06. I had no clue what I was doing and at the time people were like?? Ethiopia? wheres that. The website had all the forms I needed and at the time there were just three agencies operating in Ethiopia. I have to say I initially went with AFAA due to Cheryls personal story and the lowest fees:) I had an extremely smooth process and Cheryl even went out of her way to assist me in country when I had been ripped off by the taxi driver. Over the years I have seen situations arise in different countries that resulted in snags in the process and I have seen the fallout it creates with people who although paying super low price meaning less staff meaning less time to contact you. A lot of the time people complain about lack of communication. If you want your hand held then go with an agency that charges 3x the price and has 3x the staff. I would absolutely go with AFAA again if I was to adopt. I believe they are the only agency that does just African adoptions
