Referrals are in...

Referrals are in for the latest children from China to be placed with their forever families! It's always an exciting time. Each month China sends a 'batch' of referrals all over the world to adoptive families anxiously awaiting to see their child's face. On March 3rd referrals starting arriving for families who were logged into China before January 4, 2006. Finally we were in 2006!!!!!!!!!!!! The days of referrals average 7-9 days of log in dates each month...so you can see why/how the wait times are increasing with each passing month.

In the last year they have only referred log in dates from mid October 2005 thru January 4, 2006. At some point in history CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs) had referred a whole months worth of log in dates at a time. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon.


My Log in Date is February 25, 2007. I just celebrated my one year anniversary and have many more months (years?) ahead. It can be discouraging at times, but until then it really helps to follow along on other people's adoption journey through websites and blogs. So if anyone is reading this with a recent referral...Congratulations!!!
