CCAA Update

The CCAA (Chinese Center for Adoption Affairs) did referrals up to March 6, 2006 (Our log in is March 13, 2006).

At first I thought this was a four day batch but then I looked at a 2006 calendar (only folks adopting from China have their 2006 calendars handy!) and I realized that March 3 was a Friday and March 6 was a Monday so that means it was only a two day batch. Again! What in the WORLD? This is a country who for YEARS processed 30 days a month and now another month of just two days?

If they continue at the two-day pace we will get our referral in June. I remember last fall when another China mom said that her guess for us was March and I couldn't believe it. I don't know why I couldn't believe it! What will be hard to believe is when we actually DO have Olivia's referral! I will be black and blue all over from asking y'all to pinch me!

Sorry about the news of the adoption slowdown again....but I sure love that picture! It says it all. (On the other hand, while checking out your blog I'm also listening to Tony Merida's sermon on God's Providence.....) So hang in there; don't give up.

Poot! What a disappointment! It's GOT to be soon, though. It's just GOT to! We can still hope for April, can't we? Do things ever speed up, or do they just keep getting slower? Sending love & prayers. Trying to focus on your coming trip!

Sorry to hear that CCAA processed such a small number of LIDs, but the good news is that you are getting closer! I'm with Jodi...and holding out for a May referral for you. And just think...this month will fly by for you and the next batch of referrals will be on their way!

I know this is so disappointing. How much we all wanted you to have a picture of Olivia in your hands to show P & P!!!

Abide in Him even still, dear friend!!!

Here's my positive thinking at work:
while you are awaiting your referral, you are probably in the process of being matched (if you haven't already been) with your daughter. So in a file folder in China, your daughter's pictures awaits. You are already a Mom on paper!

Before you throw tomatoes at me, check out my blog: you have an award waiting!

I know how hard these last few months are - torturous, really. But at least you have me and many others to vent, too! ;)
