While it’s not yet confirmed, it seems pretty certain that the referral cut off for this month will be for log-in dates up to and including August 23rd, 2005. The European agencies have officially posted this info and they’re usually correct.
This isn’t good news. Every month we (the China adoption community) hopes this will be the month we see a speed up at the CCAA and every month we’re disappointed again. The last few months of 2005 are huge so I truly don’t believe things are going to get faster any time soon. Realistically, with no change, I suspect we’ll receive our referral in July or August 2007.
The latest rumors are saying the wait time is expected to continue to extend up to 24 months. I think that we all need to accept this as the new reality and plan accordingly.
