Depressing Update From Our Agency

Dear Families,

It is America World's desire to keep families informed of the latest happenings within the CCAA (China Center of Adoption Affairs). Posted on the CCAA's internal website yesterday was the following: " The CCAA has finished the placement of children for the families whose adoption application documents were registered with our office before October 26, 2005." America World's next LID (log in date) is October 27th, 2005, so this means that we will not receive a set of referrals in this group, unfortunately.

We have heard that a large number of Dossiers were logged in to the CCAA on October 25th and 26th, which could account for the CCAA only processing 2 days worth of LID's in this month's referral batch. As a reminder, each month the CCAA compares the number of children available for adoption with the number of dossiers with the log in dates next in line. Each month the number of log in dates varies, though the average number of log in days processed over the past few months has been 15.

What we can conclude is that the wait time has and will continue to increase. By the time families logged in toward the end of October 2005 receive their referral they will have waited roughly 18-19 months from LID to referral. This means that families with an LID after October 27th will wait 18-19 months or longer for a referral. We will continue to keep families informed of the current wait time through email communication and the Weekly Update on America World's website. Please let me know if you have any questions, and know that you have been prayed for today and will continue to be prayed for through this difficult time.
