Ryan's Adoption Timeline

Adoptive families are usually curious about timelines thus this page was created just for those inquisitive people. Keep in mind, Indian adoption is unpredictable. No two adoptions will move at the same pace. Patience, a sense of humor, lots of prayer and a good support group are essential with any adoption.
