Happy Labor Day!

Hi Everyone,

If you go to the CCAA website, it will show you how far they've gotten with the reviewing (first paragraph) and the matching (second paragraph).

The website just changed to show that families with LID's through 11/25/05 have been matched. This is wonderful news for them!

The downside of this is that only 4 days' worth of LID's were matched this month. According to Rumor Queen, Nov. 22 was a huge day.

My personal prediction was that the CCAA would match through November 27. I was off by two days.

You have to remember that when our paperwork was logged in at the CCAA the current wait time was about 8 months. The families who will receive referrals this month will have waited for 22 months.

China Adoption Forecast now guesses that our family will receive our referral on May 1, 2008! That will put us, from the beginning of our adoption, 30 days shy of 3 years!!! If this guess pans out, our wait will be 27 months (from LID to referral - this isn't counting the 7 months it took us to get our dossier ready).

I must tell you that I am NOT a happy camper today. I'm glad to have the day off, I'm going back to bed.
