When I clicked onto the CCAA website, as I do every morning, there was the news that I've been waiting for...."the CCAA has finished review of the documents registered with our office before July 31st, 2005". Since I was logged in on July 8th THAT'S ME!!!!!
What does this news mean? Well, it means that my paperwork had no problems and was approved by China and it means that my file (really just that attractive passport photo I sent and short bio) has been moved to the matching room. It's not being matched yet but it's there, sitting on a shelf with all it's July friends a little closer to it's turn.
I'm going to take this as a good sign, we (July) did not stay in the review nearly as long as April and May and maybe they (CCAA) are ready to pick up the pace. I know that their goal was a 10 month wait and to accomplish this they can't keep up this slow pace. They need to at least match 3 weeks at a time!!!
The bottom line is this, best case I'll get my referral in late April, more realistic thinking would say May. I chose to be unrealistic about this and bet the ranch on April...what the hell I can un-bet the ranch at any time since I don't have one to bet anyway.
This is movement and I desperately needed some movement so let the good times roll and get those late May and June referrals in the air. I'm ready for Motherhood!!!
Hang in there Kacey Mommy's coming :)

Bet the ranch!!!!! I'm with you on the great April hope. Oh man, can you believe it: we are IN the matching room. I am covered with goosebumps right now and feel like yelling out my window (even though it would freak out the neighbors.)

Just got home and started my nightly blog reading hour(s) and how exciting to see the CCAA has finished reviewing July. Almost fell out of my seat I was so excited. We are July 8 also and I am planning on a May referral while secretly crossing my fingers and toes for an April referral.
