Matches for April 2005

Today, adoption agencies everywhere around the world, announced that they had received referrals from China, for families waiting since April 1st - April 15th. We've been waiting since May 6th, so we're very close to getting our referral. It's taken much longer than expected, but somehow it feels like the timing is right.
Congratulations to all the waiting families that now have a face to match the name!
It's very possible that we'll receive our referral in January. With Chinese New Year starting January 29th, and lasting upwards of more than two weeks, CCAA has been known to send two sets of referral batches in January to avoid the rush during Chinese New Year. If CCAA sends a full month in January, we will be in that batch, and if they continues to send referrals of only half months, then our referral will be either in late January or mid/late February.
It's been a long journey, but every step is one step closer.

That is good news. The wait must be agonizing..

It is agonizing. Especially now..knowing that it's cold in China, and we were already supposed to be getting ready to bring our daughter home.
But, it's nice to know that buddies like you are checking in...it makes the winter feel a bit warmer. :-)
