Where Are You?

We don’t know what life has in store for us. I would only be moderately surprised if we ended up adopting a Martian child.
But let’s play pretend for a second...
From what I have seen, the home study process can take a few months. Say we expect it could be done and ready to go by January at the earliest. March at the latest.
Then, we were told the quickest referral for a Sri Lankan child in Canada was 8 months, but it can take up to 2 years.
We have requested a baby less than 12 months old. Kids are available from 4 months on.
So if the home study takes really long, and our referral takes really long, we could get matched around March 2014. Let’s just say I’m not a big fan of this option...
On the other end, if the home study goes really quick and our referral goes really quick as well, we could get a referral around September 2012. If this is for a 4 months old baby, it would have been born in May 2012. It would have been conceived in August 2011! Maybe we have a little embryo, somewhere on the planet!
And if we get a quick home study and quick referral, and our child is 12 months old at the time of referral, it would have been born around September 2011. Yes. RIGHT NOW!!!
It’s completely crazy to not know if you have a child in this world...
