My husband and I are looking to adopt in the relative near future. We're not sure if we want to do a US or international adoption. Does anyone know how long either could take? This would help us decide when to start the process. If it takes six months we'll wait a little while. If it takes a couple of years we'll start the process much sooner. Also, are there any tips or need to do's that would be helpful for adoptive parents. This will be our second child, if that helps. Thanks!
