Just as they told us - International Adoption is unpredictable.
I just thought I'd give you a quick update. Our adoption agency has upped the estimated wait time for a referral to 6-9 months. That puts us at getting a referral anytime between early February and early May. Families who are getting referrals right now have been waiting approximately 7 months, so, we'll see how that fluctuates as we get closer to getting a referral!
They have also increased the time to travel after referral to 4-ish months, although, they did say that they are hoping/anticipating a decrease in that wait time. We'll have a LOT to do between referral and travel, so be it 3 months or 5 months we'll be busy! We are holding off on doing anything to the baby's room until we get a referral so we can make it gender specific. And I will say, it is very hard to prepare for your first child when you have no idea the age, weight, gender! So, yes, we will have much to do after we get that phone call, whenever it may be!
