Dear Mr/Ms MP - Just Copy and Paste

Dear MP

I am writing to you regarding the recent bankruptcy announcement of Imagine Adoption, based in Cambridge, Ontario. This agency was one of only two that is currently licensed to complete adoptions in the country of Ethiopia. Many families from all over Canada (once approved by a provincial adoption agency) have become clients of Imagine Adoption. It has been reported that there are over 400 families that are directly affected by this tragedy.

In the long process to adopt, these families have invested both emotionally and financially in order for Imagine to fulfill not only a legal contract, but their dreams to complete their family. It is imperative that the contract be fulfilled and that these families may bring home their long awaited children from Ethiopia, whether they have received a child referral already or not.

This has been an already very long journey for most of these families. They did everything by the book. They trusted Imagine and the government who licensed them. I am asking that the government now take action to support all the families affected.

I am writing to you to ask for your help; to immediately determine a solution to facilitate and complete all of Imagine Adoption's active files affected by this bankruptcy.

It is imperative that the federal government take an active role in ensuring the well-being of the many hundreds of children and Canadian families who have found themselves completely at a loss in this situation.

We trust that swift government action will accompany the bankruptcy announcement of Kids Link/Imagine Adoption and we await your timely response to this letter.

My wife and I are in the same boat. We contacted MP and MPP and only received one acknowledgment from our MPP.

It is interesting to see that one MP is involved in the Bankruptcy:

It seems as if there has been some hopeful news in the past few days and that a lot of behind the scenes stuff sounds like it has been happening and really quickly too since this whole mess only started a week and a day ago so I'm hopeful that your adoption will happen and that someday this will be a story that you tell your Ethiopian child about what a journey you had to travel to get to them.
