Five Year Mark
It's official. The families who recently received their referrals (matches to their babies in the non-special need child line) waited FIVE years from the date their dossiers were logged in with CCAA (I know, it's not called that any more).
Early on, I did some math calculations and came up with a wait of 6 years 2 months or four months or something like that and it's looking like that's right on the nose for me. The earliest I'd expect my referral is Dec. 2012 based on more recent calculations.
I realize the wait for some families has really turned into a nightmare. The older parents have my sympathy and those with other children who may be teenagers or in college by the time their baby sibling arrives home.
I still feel like I'm in a unique situation, having aleady realized the dream of my first child, and finding the wait is still optimal for our situation. I'd like to, somehow, add a teenage girl to our family.
