We officially started paperchasing for our 2nd adoption from China in June. Many of you know that already, but some do not- so it's official. We had our home visit with our social worker, Julie, yesterday. Julie was with us through our adoption with Maddy so it's nice to have her doing it again this time around.
Our biggest hurdle (besides the long wait) this time around will be getting the paperwork thru USCIS (aka Immigration). There are new forms & a slightly different process and we are essentially only the 2nd family from our agency to go thru it since all the new rules started this spring. From what I hear they are much picker now & have gone back & forth many times with various agencies.
We will keep you updated as we go thru the process, but pretty much once the paperwork goes to China it's anyone's guess as to the length of wait. We are preparing for 4-5 years but praying for a little less time. So, buckle in for a long ride.
