America World is pleased to announce that we received 5 healthy female referrals today! Families receiving referrals were logged into the China Center of Adoption Affairs on March 7, 2006 (group 251). The little girls are currently located in the Guangdong Province and range in age from 6 to 29 months. Please join us in congratulating these families, and in praying for them as they prepare to travel.
Families receiving referrals this month waited 37 months from their LID to the time of their referral. Families are encouraged to calculate their wait time as a projected estimation, knowing there is no way to predict the actual wait time for families with LID’s after March 7, 2006. The wait time changes as it is based on the number of LID’s from around the world and the number of referrals that are paper-ready each month. The wait time continues to increase by a half a month to a full month each month. America World will continue to report monthly wait time trends. Families should continue to anticipate a long wait for a healthy referral.
