Start the clock!

June 18, 2010

We have FINALLY been approved by the ICBF in Colombia to adopt an infant age 0-2.  Now our wait officially starts!  I really don’t know how long it will be, our best estimate is 3-4 years from now.  Which will make our total adoption time 6 years!  Yikes!  I am sure it is worth the wait, but is very daunting to think about.  It really does not seem like we have already been in process for 2 years, so I am hoping that will continue to be the case.  I don’t want to wish time away, but life goes so fast…our referral will come when the time is right.  Now all we have to do is keep up with our I-600 and we should be good to go!  Hurrah!

    Congratulations!! There was a new ICBF list posted with a lot of movement. It looks like people approved in Feb 07 have referrals. Still a loooog time but at least moving in the right direction.
