CC*AA Update

Unfortunately, it wasn't a joke. While the Matching Room were hard at work, the ENTIRE month of December... they managed to match a whopping FIVE DAYS worth of files. Did I mention these files were LOGGED in December (2005)... the month that most nations have holidays and Agency's are closed? One would think, that since Agency's are closed for holidays, they wouldn't be able to send files... meaning that a piddly amount of files would actually be sent to China in December? Or is just me that thinks that?

The year was going so well, til that hit the websites!!!

If CC*AA continue to allocate 5 days a month - we won't even see Mini til 2009... let alone travel. There are 67 days between 19 Dec (where they are currently allocated up to) & 22 Feb (our LID).

*sigh* I guess we are 5 days closer. And some families will see their sweetpea's face this week. Yes, I'm going to say it... it WILL be our family ONE DAY.

*sigh* You're right...it will happen...someday. I've decided to prepare myself for 5 day batches and sadly there's still a part of me that wonders if I'm being too optimistic. :o(

Happy for you that you'll be in China this year! We'll enjoy seeing your pics and hearing your stories.

Happy 2008!!

Sad they really only got through three months in one year. We got our referral 1/3 last year and our LID was 9/9/05
