The current wait from LID to referral is 30-31 months. This represents the wait time for families who were LID at the end of January 2006. For families with LID dates after that time, the wait time trend continues to increase half a month to a full month each month. Families are encouraged to calculate their wait time as a projected estimation, knowing there is no way to predict the actual wait time for each family.
The wait time changes as it is based on the number of LID’s from around the world and the number of referrals paper-ready each month. America World will continue to report monthly wait time trends. Families should continue to anticipate a long wait for a healthy referral.
America World is committed to uplifting families in prayer as you wait to be united with your precious children.
