I cannot believe how fast the wait is going. I know it will only get harder from here on. I have heard that after the six month mark that the wait continues to get harder. And then the wait from referral to travel is absolute torture! We are still waiting on our USCIS clearance, but I am not expecting that until about December. Otherwise wait times are holding steady at about a year. So right now it looks like late April to early May at best for a referral. The good news is that, for most families, travel times seem to be a bit quicker lately!
