Adoption Update: Waiting time

I recently contacted my adoption agency to get some updated information on the rumors of Russia closing their adoption doors to US because of the recent news events involving the death of a newly adopted Russian child this past summer.

Instead of hearing possible bad news or no news at all, I actually got great news.

My adoption agency is trying to sign up as many families as possible because there are more children available than waiting parents. I was told that the waiting time for an infant girl would be 12 to 18 months but since I've requested an Asian/Eurasian child not to be shocked if it happens in 8 months to receive the referral (pictures, medical reports, etc.) Parents that are now contacting my adoption agency are being told the wait for an infant girl is 10 to 12 months to receive a referral. WOW!!!!!

Could I have Natalee home by next Christmas??????
