Shared List – October 28, 2014

Shared List Update as of October 28, 2014

Total Files – 1,835
Girls – 465 (25%)
Boys – 1,370 (75%)
LID Only – 0 (0%)
Aging Out (10+ years old) – 632 (34%)
Aging Out (12+ years old) – 307 (17%)
Aging Out (13+ years old) – 146 (8%)

Of special note:

  • The 10/28/14 Shared List has zero files designated as LID first (recently there had been a handful of those files).
  • There are 632 children age 10 and up as of the end of November birthdays.
  • Of those 632 “aging out” children, 307 of them are 12+ and 146 of them are 13+.  This means by this time next year, 146 children are aging out of the system completely.  By November 30, 2016, 307 more children will age out of the system completely.

Housekeeping:

The Shared List does not include children who are part of adoption agency orphanage partnerships, children who appear only on an adoption agency’s individual advocacy list or children whom the orphanage has not created a file with CCCWA. The Shared List is updated daily on the CCCWA website. Red Thread Advocates posts regular statistics to give an overall view of adoption trends.

Children with more minor, correctable needs are part of a monthly file release from CCCWA. Adoption agencies around the world lock files on those release dates in a matter of minutes. Nearly all of those files are matched with waiting families.
