There were a few referral postings last Friday and I'm thinking there will probably be some more today. Our agency hasn't sent out anything yet but some other agencies are reporting that the cutoff date for this cycle was 1/9/06. That's 5 whole days.

Our login date is 7/6/06 which looks like it's not that far from this last date but wow, at this rate we still have a LONG way to go. With the current trend continuing we wouldn't be back in China until summer of 2010. There are 177 log in dates to cover to get from 1/10/06 to 7/6/06. For comparisons sake, when we adopted Emma each referral cycle was covering 30+ log in dates per month.

Not sure why but I'm really not as upset about this as I probably should be. For some reason I'm at peace that it will happen when it's supposed to happen. This long wait has caused some people to switch countries, some are now adopting domestically, some have switched to adopt a special needs child and then some have dropped out completely. We have done the necessary paperwork to pursue a special needs adoption but haven't yet officially changed over. There is one little girl in particular we would like to adopt but it would be an absolute miracle for everything to work out as it should so for now we just wait ... and pray ... and wait .... and pray that our petition will be answered.
