We got our referral for our 2nd adoption
« on: November 02, 2007, 09:45:56 AM »
Just a bit of good news - we got the referral for our 2nd adoption the other day.  It is for a little boy born in May of this year in Seoul, S. Korea - and we expect to get our travel call sometime in January or February.

No not really - we continue to get copies of the well baby checkups from Korea which show he's progressing fine.  We're just kind of at the mercy of the US and Korean governmental agencies that are responsible for processing all of the necessary paperwork.  I just checked with the Pittsburgh CIS office and they're currently processing I-600's (petition to classify an orphan as an immediate relative) from July 23rd (our stuff was sent in October). :( 

Probably still a few more months before he comes home to us.

Yea the waiting really has begun to suck now.  It wasn't so bad UNTIL we got the referral and pictures and now know that our son is with the foster family in Korea.  It's great he has a loving foster family there and all but it still sucks he's still months and months away from being here with us.  Once you have that pic and the details - the wait really does stink.  We'd love for him to be here in time for Christmas but barring a miracle that won't happen.

New guy here.....I have two adopted children from South Korea and I can totally understand the waiting frustrations.  I think my son took about 22months total from start to finish while my daughter (2nd child) took more like 16months.

Both of our children were lucky to have excellent foster families and both arrived with tons of photos of their foster families and the child.  We have even sent back small photo albums @ the 1 year mark to the eastern welfare whatever it is called (sorry mind blank) so hopefully the foster family can see their progress.

Are you travelling or will they be escorted?  Both of mine were escorted here and we plan to travel to S. Korea when they are older and can actually enjoy the trip (their 3 and 1 now).
