Well, here we are at 5 months since our dossier went to Ethiopia, and 16 months since we started the paperwork to get this adoption rolling. Timelines continue to increase and I think that my initial estimate of two years to referral (from the time we send our dossier) might be a bit conservative. Our agency is now telling families that it could be 36-48 months. It does not do my heart good to hear this but it's better to know, I guess.
