The CCCWA has confirmed that they have matched families who were logged in, on, or before October 13, 2006, in this last December referral group. The CCCWA processed 3 dates for the month of December- log in dates (LID’s) for October 11-13, 2006. Please note that the only information provided on their internal website is the cut-off date. Because AWAA’s next referral group is logged in on October 16, 2006, AWAA did not receive healthy referrals in December.
The current wait time for a healthy referral from China is 74-75 months at all agencies and increasing by a month each month. This timeframe is based on the time from Log in Date to child match and applies to all families in all stages of the program. It is determined by Log in Date only and not by when a family’s adoption process began with China.
Chinese Heritage Expedites
Families who are of Chinese heritage and who have dossiers submitted as Chinese expedites, can anticipate a slightly shorter wait time. The CCCWA is currently matching Chinese expedite families who have a dossier logged in October of 2007 as they are still matching October 2006 LID’s. The CCCWA’s desire is to keep one year apart between the regular matching process and the Chinese expedite matching process. This will mean that the Chinese expedite wait time will generally be 12 months shorter than the current estimated wait time you will see listed each month.
