China – Referral Matching Cut-off Date for April
The China Center for Children's Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) announced today that they have completed the referral matching for
families who were logged in by October 25-October 26, 2006. The CCCWA
processed 2 Log in Dates for this last group of referrals. Because America World does
not have families who are logged in on the dates the CCCWA recently matched, we
did not receive healthy referrals for April. Our next group waiting on healthy
referrals have LID’s in early November 2006.
current wait time for a healthy referral from China is 78-79 months at all
agencies and increasing by a month each month. This timeframe is based on the
time from Log in Date (when the dossier arrives in China and is officially
received by the CCCWA) to the date of the child match. This wait time applies
to all families in all stages of the program and is assessed from Log in Date
only and not by when a family began working on their paperwork for China.
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.
