Insanely Depressing Referral Rumors

I don't want to get into the habit of repeating rumors when I can't confirm their origins. I'm mostly just disgusted so I'm writing to vent rather than to inform.

Recent rumblings suggest the wait time could go to 20-24 months. I can't believe I just typed that. Two years??? Theories abound: less paper-ready babies due to the Hunan baby abduction trial thus orphanages very hesitant, twice the number of family dossiers being logged in, a potentially deliberate slowdown because of the upcoming Olympics, etc. In a moment of weakness, I called my agency for reassurance. They don't speculate on rumors and simply stated that if they learn of anything factual from their facilitator in China, they will notify all families.

Perhaps I need to stop trolling the web for rumors, because nothing can be changed. We're in this for the long haul, however long it is. As long as there is no indication that adoptions are being STOPPED, there's nothing to do but wait it out. But when you've got pages of calendar ahead, it's hard not to join the others and whine in unison "HURRY UP!!!"
