How long does a domestic infant adoption take from start to finish with baby in your home?

We just mailed in our adoptin application for the state of Michigan and I am just wondering how long it may take before I have a baby shortest to longest wait time if anyone has been here before I’d love to hear from you. Thanks

    Well, ours was really short! met w/ a social worker, by the next month began classes, 2 months after we started the process we were chosen by a birth family. I know people who have waited 1 year, it really depends how fast you are on getting your home study, DOJ clearance, birth mother letter, and ect.. Then we brought our baby home and 6 mo. latter we finalized!

    My best advice to you is not to have a time limit. God will bring your family together when the time is right. I think when you worry you will never get your baby, it adds more stress and time goes by slower, keep living. Oh and Dont buy anything untill the time comes for your baby to come home! i know its sounds terrible for me to say that but protect yourself! Our social worker had us only purchase a car seat, and that was it. sorry i probley told you more than you wanted to hear, but CONGRATS on begining your family!

    It is so difficult to give you a timeframe because it varies so much for so many reasons. For us, from the time we met our son’s bio family until the day we brought him home was only four months, but our situation was a bit unique because the child had already been born. He was two months old when we met him. I know some people who have waited a year or more to bring a child home.

    Good luck to you.

    My adoptive parents waited about a year between the time they applied and when I was finally in their home. But, once I was there, it wasn’t “finished.” It was just the beginning. I struggled, they struggled. I was disappointed, they were disappointed. It’s still not “finished” 50+ years later.
