CCAA Update

The DoCS website was updated with this info last week regarding inter-country adoption from China.
Woohoo! -
The China Centre of Adoption Affairs (CCAA) has advised the Australian states and territories that, while the upper age limit is still 55 years, CCAA has a preference for younger parents for the children requiring adoptive families and specifically want to find young parents for children under two years.

Boohoo... -
CCAA has also advised that waiting times for the China program have increased. Once a group of files is sent to China, couples can anticipate waiting approximately 13 months until they are considered for a placement. This waiting time may change, depending on the number of files received from overseas countries.
