No official word yet from China, yet we're almost 99.9% sure that referrals only go through May 30th. Nothing we can do now except wait and try to relax. Ha! Easier said than done, but it helps that this is my spring break week.
By the way, some people have asked if the delay has been caused a problem with our agency. No, they have nothing to do with the slowdown. All adoptive families (adopting through China) around the world are waiting just the same, all agencies, all families, everyone! We're all just doing the only thing we can...trying to survive the wait. China is very systematic this way and does not give preferential treatment to anyone regardless of agency, money, country, etc. It would be very uncharacteristic of the Chinese to do otherwise.
Hopefully we can say without a doubt that we are next and we will have our referral at the end of April. However, I'm not guessing anything any more! Been there done that the last two months and it stings when you find out it's not true. Not gonna guess no more!
