Light At The End Of The Tunnel

When this journey began back in 2005, we never imagined that our wait would be so long. Back then the wait was only about 6 months from completion of paperwork until you received a referral. After 5 years of waiting, we are beginning to see a faint light at the end of the tunnel. The CCAA has finally started processing files in our month. What is yet to be seen is how long it will take them to get through 25 more days worth of other families' paperwork so that it will be our turn. We just hope that 2010 will finally be the year we see Emily's face for the first time. Follow along with us as we wait out these finally days. (We can now truly say we know what it means to be on a slow boat to China)
