America World is excited to announce that we received 4 healthy referrals at the end of November. Please join us in congratulating these families and in praying for them as they prepare to meet their children. The CCCWA matches all agencies with the same dates, even if there are no families at certain agencies who are LID on the dates they are processing. Our next group of families waiting for a healthy referral match at AWAA have a Log in Date (LID) of October 16, 2006.
The CCCWA matched families who are logged in, on, or before October 10, 2006, in this last November referral group. The CCCWA processed 2 dates for the month of November, LID’s for October 9-10, 2006. Please note that the only information provided on their internal website is the cut-off date.
The current wait time for a healthy referral from China is 74-75 months 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 not determined 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.
