Although an official announcement has not been made, it appears that CC*AA is holding referrals due to H1N1.Rumours abound as to what 'might' be happening but realistically we don't really know. What I do know is that it has now been 40 days since the last referrals were sent out and other than during SARS, referral batches have never reached this duration between them.
When they will begin to be sent out again, nobody really knows. Also, the question of whether more days than normal will be referred is also anyone's guess. After SARS CC*AA sent out larger referral batches so this may happen again.
Since I have no real answers my heart is still preparing for a July referral with travel in late August/early September!!! Ooooo....SO close!
One thing that makes me smile on a daily basis is people asking about Hannah's referral. Rather than asking about referral dates, etc. I'm often asked, 'Have you moved any beads lately?' I love that the visual of the beads moving from one jar to the other is so helpful for people! It is for me too as daily I gaze at the jar on the left with the bottom showing and only 15 lonely beads in it! YES!!! Unfortunately none have moved lately but when they do I'll be shouting it from the roof tops!!
