I hopped on over to Rumor Queen this morning, and learned that dossiers logged in through February 9th have been matched with children and the families should be receiving their referrals any day now. The batch of referrals last month (August) contained only two LIDs, but this batch contains nine days! Praise God! I'm so afraid to get my hopes up that this is a sign of a speed-up. I've been praying so hard every month, and every month the batches have actually gotten smaller. The rumor is that things will speed up again after the Olympics. I see no logical explanation for that fact, yet here we are, just a week after the closing ceremonies, and with a larger-than-usual batch. Well, whatever the future holds, I am so grateful that the CCAA is nine days closer to matching our dossier with our Sarah! Please continue to pray for all waiting families that this batch is the beginning of a wonderful trend!
