On Tuesday, the China Center of Adoption Affairs announced it had matched children with families whose dossiers were logged in by June 15, 2005. The newest referrals are arriving now at adoption agencies, and many families are seeing their children's faces for the first time. If you'd like to see some of the referrals, go to this page.
We really hope it won't be too much longer before we can share our child's photo with you, but it sometimes gets discouraging. The CCAA matched only 5 days' worth of dossiers in March and 7 days in April. Matching 9 days' worth in May was an improvement, but a small one. If they keep matching at this pace, it will take another four or five months to get to our dossier, which was logged in on July 25. We do think it will speed up a bit in coming months; we're just going to have to be patient. Meanwhile, please enjoy looking at the other referral photos so you can share in the families' joy.
