Hi! I wish you all the best of luck in your adoption journey. I have two things to mention:
First, the national average time it takes for a domestic adoption according to adoptive families magazine is 18 months. It took us a total of 22 months start to finish to adopt our daughter (with several mis-matches). I don't think 2 years is uncommon, but I understand the frustration for sure! We did marketing on our own and we received
In some states facilitators are illegal - although I'll admit I'm not sure exactly what that means.
We're a same-sex couple in Illinois and we've been waiting for 2+ years to adopt a baby. We waited just 10 months for our daughter but our second adoption has taken much longer.
