Here's a link from our agency's website explaining some of the factors involved in matching a child and family, as well as some of the steps that happen before a referral can be given to a waiting family:
We field regular questions about the length of the process, and when we "expect" news - there really isn't a timeframe, and this link helps explain why that is. We try not to expect anything, and will just be surprised & excited when our turn comes! If you have an urge to ask us a question about our adoption, feel free to inquire about things like the nursery, baby products, minivans, etc. - we can happily give you answers & opinions on those things, just not about adoption timeframes & updates.
