Olympics

I called FOI to get clarification on the olympics and what delays it could cause, it was a good news/bad news kinda thing.The good news is for Canadian adoptions matching will not stop over that time, the bad news, Travel Approvals could be delayed up to 3 months at that time. What that means is that normally when you are matched you then have a 6-8 week wait to get TA to go over, if your match happens around the time of the olympics you could tack on another month and a half or so before you get approval to actually go to China and get your child. China has travel restrictions in Bejing due to pollution issues etc and the Canadian consulate is in Bejong, so adoptions can't be finalized without a trip there. US adoptions don't have that issue, they will just steer clear of Bejing...

I know that our Lord will give little Julia a peace in her heart as she waits for her mommy and daddy to bring her home.
She will not be alone as she waits, for she will be in the loving care of the very best.
Love and prayer continue my friends.
