Shorten my red thread or this ladybug will chew out your jugular
Shorter Research-China.org: We're looking at a historically high wait time for China adoption referrals, principally because some greedy bastards in Hunan were stealing and selling babies (for which several have been made extremely dead and are presently in hell being introduced to the infernal punishment that more lighthearted demons refer to as "Bend Over; I'm Driving"), and the most likely outcome over the next year is for the referral wait period to slowly return to closer to the something closer to 300 days.
But don't take it from me - go here to read the whole thing.
For those of us in the system now, however, the referral wait will include this little "hiccup" - we won't get to meet our little sons or daughters for more like 18-24 months. That sucks pipe, but just little copper plumbing pipe, not the monstrous concrete storm drain pipe that a three- to four-year wait would suck.
So hang in there, gang. The stork's gonna fly, dammit, if we have to shove a JATO booster up it's ass...
It'll just take a little longer than we had hoped. But Mojo and I will be here when you're ready, Mei Mei.
