Referrals from China

Every month when China releases referrals I send an email to some friends and family with an update. I’ve decided to start putting the update in my LJ as well. I may be glad for the record some day, and some of my Friends may enjoy the blog links. (The blogs I’m linking to have been submitted by their owners for public posting on a Chinese adoption web site, so I’m not worried about linking to them here. But I will keep these entries “Friends only” just to add a layer of privacy for them.)

China has just delivered referrals through 11/21/05. So, seven more days down. Our log in date is 2/25/07. The process remains painfully slow. Right now our likely referral time will be near the end of 2010. But the truth is that we’re too far out for anything to be much more than a guess.

We did have a bumper crop of great referral blogs this month. Here are a few of my favorites:

Waiting for Landree
Winding Vines
And Shayla Makes Three
Donna and Jeff
Waiting for Junie

  1. I clicked on the “Waiting for Junie” link, saw a picture of the little girl, then the caption that said “The UPS man came!” and for the briefest, splittest second, I thought they delivered the babies by UPS.
    Silly me.

    • Not that I’m not looking forward to a trip to China, but don’t I wish.
      South Korea came close. That country is pretty much closed now, but when they were open adoptive parents had the option of having their baby brought to them in the US. If I’m not mistaken, the baby often came along with a member of the Korean military. How cool would that be?
