Me again...

I know it sucks. It sucks BIG time.

As for all of this causing waves - it might, but as I've said before, the "waves" don't necessarily mean a thing to China. Remember they're a communist country....not a democratic one. Their country, their rules. They can tell us to piss off if they want to - we can't do a damn thing about it unfortunately.

I know that this is a CCAA policy because our Cultural Liaison person just spoke to the CCAA over the weekend. This isn't something posted on their website (that I know of anyways - maybe it will be eventually).

Re: South Africa - unfortunately the program is available only to Ontario residents right now. I don't know why. For Korea the reason is because the Korean gov't feels that a child would be exposed to the Korean culture moreso here in Ontario than in other provinces of Canada. Not sure if the same applies to SA? (we don't make all the rules as an agency - the countries set the rules). Definitely contact whomever you need to in your province, and ask if they can be licenced.

Let me know if there are any other questions. I'll do my best to answer them!

Thank you - I think you picked up on my real question - is it the agency or the country who has limited who can apply.

This new policy that they've decided on not allowing con-current adoptions, is this something that is to take effect right away or will it be like the news rules, effective a certain date? At the current rate we're going, we'll be collecting in our retirement before we become parents.

Do you think this is the CCAA's attempt at "purging" the waiting list?

Any word on when CB will announce what we need to update? I am holding off on Christmas shopping until I know how much $$$$ this is going to set us back.

Thanks for the updates.
