13 Months Logged in Today
My dossier for Abby has now been logged in with China for over one year! It's amazing to me all of the things that I have experienced since then. This has truly been an incredible journey. I wouldn't trade it either. The experiences (both good and bad) that I have had thus far have truly contributed to who I am and who I will be as a future Mother to Abby.
I still have no idea how much longer I will have to wait before Abby is finally in my arms. As of now the last group of lucky parents that received their referrals had waited 16 long months from their time of log in date. My wait is likely to be longer then that. We all keep hoping that the wait for referrals will finally stabilize. It's not happening so far.
Rumors say that the number of dossiers sent to China exceed the number of babies available by half. As a result of this fact the CCAA have recently announced new rules that must be followed in order to adopt a child from China. There are several but the one that Impacts me is that as of May 7th, 2007 singles will no longer be allowed to adopt a Child from China. I am very grateful that I entered the China Adoption program when I did. Many agencies have stated that those whose dossiers have already been logged in to China by the CCAA will be grandfatherd in as long as they have been logged in by May 2007. Please pray with me that this will continue to hold true.
