Latest Updates from CCAA!!

Good news! Sixteen days worth of referrals. Now we just want to see the first date change, so we know our file has been reviewed and we have reached another important milestone. We may already be through, but won't know for certain until they update the info.

UPDATE 11/3 - The CCAA updated their site this morning to show that January is out of the review room! What this means, is that our dossier has been examined and approved for adoption. The next step will be matching us with a child. No word on how long this will take, but we hope to hear in the Spring. We are relieved and so excited to have reached another milestone on this journey.


  1. Wonderful news and one step closer!!

  2. Yay!!!! Congratulations!! I hope we will see you in China in April-ish???


  3. Susan, I am so happy we both made it through unscathed. We will be in China before we know it holding Sophia and Lily Kate.
    Love Ya

  9. I heard a story on NPR this morning that said the number of Chinese babies available for U.S. adoption is being reduced. The reduction criteria includes removing single, obese or over-50 year old prospective parents. You're not in any of those categories, thankfully, and I'm not sure when the new rules go into effect, but it sounds like the Chinese government is trying to stem the tide.
