File Review

Well, our file is out of the reviewing room. The CCAA has updated their website with the following:

"The CCAA has finished the review of the adoption application documents registered with our office before September 30, 2005."

So since our file was registered with their office September 7, 2005, that means we passed! I guess that means we're one step closer. Our file will now go to the matching room where we will be matched with a little one. Unfortunately referrals aren't coming any faster so we are still many months away from seeing the face of our little one. But at least our file is moving.

Stay posted.

16 Months!?!?!?

Ok, we received another update from our agency just like we do every Friday. The news just keeps getting worse. Delays, delays, delays. The newsletter on Friday said, "the time lines are not expected to come down. In fact we feel it best to start to prepare for waits of up to 16 months to referral." Yikes! Our LID was September 7/05 so that puts us at January 2007. We were really hoping to have been to China and back again before Christmas this year. Now we may not even have the referral before that time. I guess the hardest part is that originally we were expecting our referral in February or March 2006 so we would be travelling right around now. As it sits now, it may be a year longer than originally thought.

Again, this is very frustrating. It's all in God's hands and we will continue to wait His timing.
