For those of you who have already completed your adoption (hooray) or are closing in on uniting with your child permanently, I was wondering if you take a few seconds to vote? Since I have such a "planner" personality, it's been hard to have an abstract time frame and no real sense of what to expect time- wise. We've told family/friends that it will probably take a year to bring our child (or children) home, but now I'm beginning to wonder if that's realistic? Most of the other blogs I've seen, it looks like 18 seems to be the average. We intend to go as fast as possible, but I know many variables are beyond our control. Could you share how long it took (or you expect it to take)? I'm praying for patience and trusting that God will bring us to our child (or children) at the exact moment he ordains, so I know I just need to trust and relax! Any insight you could offer I would appreciate greatly.
