Referrals are in...

The CCAA hasn't updated their web-site yet, but it seems they got through dossiers logged in before November 1, 2005. They left off at October 26th last month, so that's six days. This is better than the two days they did last month, but not the two-weeks we were hoping for.

If they could manage to get back to referring two weeks every month, we may see a referral this December or January '08. Here's how it would look:

May referrals through 11/11/05
June referrals through 11/25/05
July referrals through 12/9/05
August referrals through 12/23/05
Sept referrals through 1/6/06
Oct referrals through 1/20/06
Nov referrals through 2/3/06
Dec referrals through 2/17/06 (us)
Jan referrals through 3/3/06

According to the polls on RQ, November is a BIG month and it may take the CCAA three months to get through all the dossiers. If this is the case, we can add on another month or two.

This would put us at a 22-24 month wait from our LID of 2/17/06. Doesn't the CCAA realize that we're NOT getting any younger?? I would have NEVER imagined in my wildest dreams that it would take this long to get our referral...this is so frustrating!

I am thinking January for us.... Such a long wait. The hardest part is explaining to our non-adoption informed family and friends....


Janet said...

It is discouring no matter how you try to look at it.

Steffie B. said...

Yes...the thought nearly makes me ill! I'm LID for 1 month. I guess we'll all just have to hope and pray that something happens to kick up the pace!

Elise said...

I'm with steffie b., let's hope and pray for a speed up somehow.

I know in our DTC group a lot people have taken the SN route or switched countries all together. That should relieve some of the numbers???? Am I just grasping at straws?

Hi Donna,

I feel your pain!! We have the same log in date. I'm mentally prepared for a 24 month wait, it wasnt easy getting to this frame of mind but I had to for my own sanity. Anything before the 24 months would be a surprise and a blessing for us. Hang in there
