How long does it take to adopt a child?
Is there a range of time to keep in mind?
My parent's adopted a 15 year old from Kazahkstan a couple years ago. The process took about a year before they could bring him home, and then it was another 6 months or so before he became an official citizen and all the paperwork was complete. I think it varies, but anywhere between 6 months - 2 years is fairly normal.
