We did it in 2006. The whole process took a little over a year, from the time we started paperwork to when we took our daugher home. We are very lucky. The people who started a little later would have to wait for a much longer time. There are actually quite a few Chinese adopting families. In our travelling group of 12 families, there were 3 Chinese families. Except us, each of the other two couples already had a biological son, but they both adopted a girl from China. All the children in our group are doing very well.
