Screw That Box

So everyone's talking about the changes on the CC*AA website. The little document processing box will no longer be there. Which basically means that they're not making it public knowledge as far as what log in date they've referred up to or what log in dates have made it thru the Review Room.

I'm not surprised. China adoption has become one long, winding, up and down rollercoaster ride. I used to ride with my hands fearlessly thrown in the air. Now I'm just hanging on for dear life with my eyes clenched tightly shut trying not to puke.

I'm not really concerned about the disappearance of the little box. Those of us who follow Rumor Queen always know the cut off long before they switch the box anyway. The only thing we're really losing is the Review Room info.

And I think what a lot of us are forgetting is that they announced awhile back a new pay-for-info policy. I thought the box was coming down then. But it stuck around a bit longer. So this translates to me that a public info box has now become a private info box for only agencies to see.

I'm not gonna let it get my panties in a bunch. Because this is a new year. One that I will not waste fretting over what China may or may not do. I'm not gonna pick apart every little thing that happens and "what if" it to death. Because the truth is that none of us know what the hell is going on. Except that the CC*AA has publicly said that things are slowing down but that if we're patient and hang with them, we'll get a referral in the end.
I'm choosing to believe that.

So unless my agency calls and tells me "Sorry.... China changed their mind.... No baby for you", I'm just gonna keep on living my life and keep on keeping the faith. I'm with you, Kayce!

I'll keep living life too...it doesn't rule my life, hence why the less blogging lately.

I can't promise about keeping the faith 24/7 - too much of a realist for that. But, if anyone is able to keep that faith 24/7 I want to run a tox screen on them. I may need what they're on.

We'll all have our days....good and bad. Getting through them without completely going buck nutty will be a prize in itself.

Smooch.

Your right - until our agencies call and say the doors are shut - we have to just keep living. Certainly some days will be harder than others - good thing none of us are on this road alone.

The box is not a big deal. Knew it was happening. Just a smack upside the head on a day when I had already had a few smacks earlier.

Eye on the goal. Eye on the future. Getting back on the proverbial horse and riding along.

Keep smilin!

Lovin the positive attitude! I'm sure it's difficult to keep it but I love that so many are trying to keep it positive! When I read you blog of late, I think of the book.. "the little train that could". or something like that! :0)

way to go.
If there was one thing I could redo it would be to have live my life while I waited instead of fretting.

Loved your post heading! I figured I needed to post about the box for posterity, so to speak. Besides, I think my panties are too stretched already trying to cover my arse to bunch up! =)
