People who are in the NSN (non special needs) adoption process are required to sign a paper saying that they actually want to adopt the child referred to them by the CCAA. They are then issued a TA (travel approval).
The SN group hasn't had this step before, the TA would just show up, out of the blue so to speak because once a SN dossier was submitted, there was no real way to track where it was in the approval process. The CCAA has just added this step for the SN group too. I don't think it'll slow things down much at all, and it will definitely tell us where we are in the process!
Of course when you're as anxious as we are, every day counts.
