August Referrals from China

The CCAA in China recently sent out the latest batch of referrals. Like last month, they covered seven calendar days. The chart below shows what the trend has been on the number of calendars days referred each month since January of 2006. For people who are not familiar with adoption from China, I must explain that one specific week may have many more dossiers logged in than the following week. So, the chart below just gives us a rough idea of how things are going. BOTTOM LINE FOR THE HAPPY HAUS FAMILY: It’s going to be a very long time before Lily comes home. My homemade estimator is telling me it will me 21 months until referral. But that is based on history and things change constantly. [Note: chart wouldn't show up after transition to blogger see Jan 2008 chart for more up-to-date information.]
