Rumours, rumours, rumours

Ok, I'm not listening to any more rumours - good or bad. Over the past week or so, we had heard that the CCAA will possibly be sending referrals for everyone with LID's up to the end of June. That would mean that they are doing some major catching up which is a hopeful thought. Well, we found out on Friday that this is really not true. In fact the referrals that are being sent this time around are for less than a week's worth of LID's - only up to May 30. That is not very much at all. So, like I said, I'll try to ignore rumours from now on - it's hard not to get your hopes up though.

Anyway, the one good thing is that our file must be in the process of being reviewed. The CCAA has posted on their website that they have "finished the review of the adoption application documents registered with our office before August 31, 2005." Our LID is Sept. 7 so we must be in the reviewing room. It really doesn't mean anything but I guess at least something is happening. One of the couples in our travel group got a call this week telling them that they had to send a letter to CCAA to clarify something that was in their file. So that must mean someone is reviewing our files.

I'll take whatever little bit of good news I can get - as long as it's fact and not rumour!

Do you see our file anywhere?

I came across some photos from the CCAC (China Centre of Adoption Affairs) and thought I'd post them. I find it kind of interesting. If you're interested in seeing more pictures and reading more about the process that our files goes through at the CCAC, go to
