Our adoption homestudy has been approved and sent to Korea. Now we wait.
We formally began our international adoption process earlier this year in January 2007. Now after completing all of the paperwork, our homestudy has been forwarded to Korea. That essentially places us on the waiting list for a child.
We do not know, at this point, what the timeline looks like. We entered the process being told it would take approximately one year. Six months into the process, that leaves about six more months, if the timeline holds. One thing we have been told is that once we receive the name/photo of our child (i.e. referral), we can expect to make the trip to South Korea about 3 to 4 months later.
Since we also have about 6 to 8 months to complete work on our dissertations, this could get very interesting! 🙂
