How long did you wait?

I know this question has been asked several times, but just humor me please!

How long from your "activation" to placement?

Re: How long did you wait?

  • For DD#1 we matched after being active for 10 months. She was born 2 months later. Due to a birth father issue, she went to transitional care for 31 days and we had placement after that.

    The wait for DD#2 was 20 months to the day. She was already born, so there was no additional waiting time.


  • Did you go through an agency? Domestic, Foster or International?

  • I waited over 4 years.  Mine was a bit of a different circumstance, I am a single woman, and I went thru the foster care system.  But well worth the wait.  I brought my son home at 4 months old and his adoption was finalized one week after first birthday.  He turns 3 in a month.
