Next Steps in Adoption

The next steps in our adoption are these:

First we need to receive Legals (which are the paper's that state the birthparents relinquishment of our baby).  These should be here anywhere from next week until a month from now.
Then on the US side we have to submit our I-600 which takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 2.5 months to be approved for.

Meanwhile, on the Korea side:
EP - Emigration Permits are submitted and then approved by the Korean government for Faith to leave the country.  Once you receive your submission for EP, then it could take up to 12 weeks before baby comes home (of course some have come home as early as 3 weeks later).   It might still be 2 months before we are even submitted for our EP. 

Then a whole list of items need to happen:
Visa Physical
Visa Interview

Then we will receive "TRAVEL CALL".  Which is the call that means the baby is ready to travel home.

There are no set timelines in adoption, there are just endless possibilities.
