June– China Program Referral Update
We are excited to announce that June referrals arrived in our office on Monday, June 7th . America World received 4 referrals for all of our families logged in at the CCAA on April 24, 2006. The CCAA processed 5 days of LIDâ€™s and matched log in dates from April 22-26, 2006.
Next AWAA Group To Receive a Referral
America Worldâ€™s next group anticipating a referral is group 261 who have a LID (log in date) of 4/29/2006. We do not know how many LID dates the CCAA will process in their next group of referrals for July. The average processing timeframe is 2-6 LID dates each month. The CCAA does not guarantee processing timeframes.
Current Wait Time
The current wait time from LID to referral is 50-51 months with a trend of increasing approximately a full month each month. Families should read the China Program Newsletter emailed on 3/19/2010 to understand the variety of factors contributing to the wait time and the reasons why it is impossible to predict the referral wait time for each family. Families should continue to anticipate a long wait for a referral.
As the wait time has increased for the China program, the wait time for Chinese expedited cases has also increased. Though the CCAA does not guarantee the timelines for an expedited referral for Chinese heritage families. Chinese heritage families should anticipate a wait time that may be approximately 6-10 months shorter than the average wait time.
Any family interested in pursuing a concurrent adoption or the Waiting Children program should contact their Family Coordinator for more information. There are many concurrent adoption options that are available while a familyâ€™s dossier is waiting to be matched. America Worldâ€™s Waiting Children program is also an excellent option for families who are interested in a boy, an older child, or a child with various types of medical or repaired conditions.
