10 Months Down

Wow, it has been 10 months since we were logged in (LID 3-13-06). And we thought she'd be home by now! I used to do the posts on the 13th of each month with excitement. That was when we thought we knew, in general, the time line for our adoption. Now, I am just posting because I am simply chronicling the process.

The wait time is supposed to be "around 15 months" right now, but seeing as that the CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs) has only placed children whose families had their paperwork registered before 9-27-05, I personally have little faith that the 15 month time frame will hold true. Let's put it this way, if China continues at the pace that they have maintained for the past six or more months, we will not travel to China until 2008. With the 2008 Summer Olympics being held in Beijing, there is much speculation that this has something to do with it, but China says this is not so.

Additionally, when the process has been delayed this many times, we find that it is best if we don't have any expectations about it, then we won't be disappointed again. So, please continue to pray for us, all the waiting families and most importantly, please remember to pray for the Olivia and orphans all over the world.
