This morning I found a post with some disappointing news....it said a few European agencies are reporting that the Chinese Center of Adoption Affairs will not be sending referrals at this time due to the Swine Flu outbreak. Get on the computer this afternoon and now a North American agency confirmed this disappointing news as well.
The next batch of referrals were due to hit sometime next week. One of these agencies is saying referrals are on hold for 20 to 30 days, at which time a decision will be made of whether to release them or continue to hold them.
What does this mean for us? Not sure. It is being said that the Chinese Center of Adoption Affairs offices will remain open and continue to work. If that is the case and the hold is lifted in 30 days there should be a bigger batch next month. Who knows. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
