No one except someone who’s right in the middle of it really wants to hear your adoption timeline–it’s like describing the mucus plug. That said, I have personally poured over dozens, if not hundreds, in the last few weeks. SO:
We started the process in 2/08.
Filed for I-600a on the last possible day: 3/31/08.
Fingerprinted 5/08
Homestudy completed 10/08
I-171 received 11/08
DTC 11/08
Referral 2/28/09 (We were matched by the CCAA after filling out a special needs/waiting children form created by our agency)
PA 3/12/09
LOA 4/15/09
TA5/27/09

QUARANTINED (Visit the June 2009 archives to see the fun)
CA 7/6/09

Other details:
We worked with LSSNE (Lutheran Social Services of New England) and Homeland Adoptions.

Rory was fostered at the Hidden Treasures Foster home in Fujian, China. She was found in Changle City.
