Referral Announcement & Wait Time

America World Referrals

America World is pleased to announce the receipt of 3 healthy female referrals today!  Families receiving referrals were logged into the China Center of Adoption Affairs on February 17 of 2006 (group 249).  The little girls are currently located in the Jiangxi & Shanxi provinces and range in age from 6-29 months.  Please join us in congratulating these families, and in praying for them as they prepare to travel.

China Wait Time Report: November 2008

The current wait from LID to referral is 33-34 months and increasing. This represents the wait time for families who have just received their referrals this month (LID 2/17/06) and potentially those who are next to receive their referrals. 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 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.

America World is committed to uplifting your family in prayer as you wait to be united with your precious child.
