Still pregnant after all these months...

Today marks 26 months closer to my sweet Emma...It feels so bittersweet. In one breath, I know I am closer, but then...It's also just so far away. As of today, CCAA has processed dossiers logged in by March 6, 2006. That means there are 331 more days before they get to me. That sadly does NOT mean that I will get a referral in 331 days. Right now they process an average of 3 days a month. So if it continues this slowly, we're looking at 110 more months. yes...that's right... potential 9 YEARS to go. Insert many various cuss words here. And did you happen to notice that I've been waiting for 790 days. Yep...I don't like the math! Think I'll go get the donoughts...

Is there an active effort to get the process moving faster for all families adopting?

Is there a chance to move your adoption to another country? Our dear friends adopted their 3rd daughter from China and were in the process of a 4th adoption when the agency contacted them to see if they would be interested in Taiwan. They said absolutely and within 5 months they had their baby, John Thomas in their arms. They only had to travel a total of 4 days, keeping their travel costs way, way down. Something to think about....

Love you blog....love reading about the hopes and dreams for your little girl!!

Hey Erin - There are rumors that it may speed up in the coming months...but we've also heard these rumors before. I'll believe it when I see it.

I am in an agency that only does adoptions from China. Also, as a single, the countries I am eligible to adopt from are limited. But if I were to change countries, I would lose all that I have invested so far in this process. It's kind of like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. I also feel that God has lead me to China...I feel that's where she is, so I will wait.

I am glad you enjoy the blog...I think it will be here for a long time! :) Ha Ha!

It will happen and it cant possibly take another 9 years! It just CANT. They used to easily process a month at a time...and even two at a time...when we received our referral for Sophie, they were processing TWO at a time! So we KNOW it is POSSIBLE!

I simply cannot fathom another 9 years. Something has got to happen to change this. I just don't feel in my heart it will be 9 more years for you.
