December Update – Referrals, Dossier Review, & the Wait Time
The CCAA has finished the placement of children for the families whose adoption application documents were registered with their office before February 23, 2006. The CCAA processed 6 days of LIDâ€™s (Feb. 18-23, 2006) for December referrals. Since America World did not have any more Log in Dates for the month of February, we were not expecting any February referrals for the month of December.
America Worldâ€™s next LID group to be matched is 3/1/06. America World has the following March LIDâ€™s:
â€¢ March 1, 2006
â€¢ March 7, 2006
â€¢ March 13, 2006
â€¢ March 16, 2006
â€¢ March 22, 2006
â€¢ March 24, 2006
â€¢ March 28, 2006
Dossiers for the month of March are still under review. The CCAA has finished the review of the adoption application documents (dossiers) registered with their office before February 28, 2007. The timeframe for the review process will vary as it is based upon the number of dossiers that are logged in during the particular month that is currently under review.
The current wait from LID to referral is 34-35 months and increasing. This represents the wait time for families who could potentially receive a referral in the next 1-2 months. (March 1, 2006 LID) 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 LIDâ€™s from around the world and the number of referrals that are 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.
We would like to remind families that we currently have a number of Waiting Children that are available for adoption. Families that are interested in adopting boys, healthy older children, or children with various special needs should contact their Family Coordinator for more information. America World continues to uplift your family in prayer during this Christmas season.
