I just received an email from our adoption agency. I was asking a question about the Post-Placement Deposit and the estimated time to receive our match.
The Post-Placement Deposit is a fee they take and then they return the deposit once they receive the reports. This is to ensure that we're doing the Post-Placement.
They currently have a single boy in the orphanage that's 4-years. If they match him with us, then we would be matched shortly. It depends on who is ahead of us in the queue that have requested a child that age. Otherwise, for a child between 2- and 4- years, we will likely be waiting for about 6 months for our match. For a child between 0- and 2- years, we would be waiting closer to 12 months.
