How much longer????
"How much longer?" That is a question that I get asked all the time. It is a tough one to answer, because I really don't know. We have been logged in for about 3 1/2 months. "Logged in" is the date when China has received your paperwork and have it in their system. Our date was April 16, 2007. There are currently 510 days in front of us in line. Sooo, after doing some math I have come up with some estimates.
If China gets through an average of 7 days per month, it will take just over 6 years until we get a referral. (Oh Lord, just put me away!)
If China gets through an average of 10 days per moth, it will take 4 years and a couple of months until we get a referral. (I feel sick)
If China gets through an average of 14 days per month, it will take just over 3 years until our referral. (I can live with that, but won't like it)
If China gets through an average of 17 days per month, it will take 2 1/2 years until our referral. (HIGHLY unlikely, but a girl can dream!)
So the big question is... what will they average??? The past 4 months they have averaged about 6 days per month.
April- 6 days Oct. 27 - Nov. 1, 2005
June- 6 days Nov. 2 - Nov. 7, 2005
July- 7 days Nov. 8 - Nov. 14, 2005
August- 7 days Nov. 15 - Nov. 21, 2005
However, the month of November, 2005 had many many many people logged in for each of those days so it has taken longer to get through them. Once China gets through this heavy month, I am hoping for some larger numbers of days. Only time will tell.
