No news yet....

Today has been 3 weeks since our first ruling. The mandatory 10-day waiting period which follows the first ruling (we assumed that meant 10 business days) ended a week ago, on June 14. As far as we know, no objections to our adoption were filed, which would mean that (as of June 15) we are eligible to receive our final ruling anytime. Our agency told us to expect the final ruling about 1 month after the first ruling -- in our case, that would be June 30. A few lucky families have received theirs sooner (about 15 days after the first ruling), but we also know of one family who have been waiting a record _7_ weeks with no ruling yet, and the only explanation they have been given is that they must have a "slow judge". Ugh. So, Rob and I are bracing ourselves for the possibility of a longer wait. We've already missed the first 8 1/2 months of Ryan's first year and we just want to get him home. This last part of the wait is the worst, by far.

Hang in there, guys! I know it is tough. There was one family with our agency that waited 8 weeks for their final ruling, but theirs was definitely the longest I have heard of. I bet you will hear in the next week or so. It really does seem like it's about a month for most people.

we are just starting the adoption process and are interested in adopting from Taiwan. Could you let us know the name of the agency you are using? couey2007
