HSTK - otherwise know as home study to Korea in the adoption world! I don't know if anyone remembers, but our approved home study was being held at our adoption agency's main office. The home studies were being kept in strict chronological order and we were told that they would be sent to Korea when Korea asked for more. At the time, back in May, I really thought it would be a few months before it was sent. The agency that our agency works with in Korea was moving office buildings that summer and I thought after they got settled that our would be sent. Well, almost 8 months later...we are HSTK!!! Yea!

This does not impact our wait time. We are still expecting an April/May referral, but it is just exciting that our file is actually in Korea! If the time lines remain the same, our referral will come when Kathryn is about 5-6 months old. That means she has definitely been born by now. That is such a strange and wonderful feeling. Our baby is out there, somewhere.....
