It can vary significantly: it takes around 10 weeks to become an approved adoptive parent (this also involves going through local, state, and federal checks). Then once you are matched with a child there are initial activities including visits and regular communication with the child (the placement is supervised for a minimum of 90 days). After this phase, if all parties are satisfied, formal procedures are made to legalise the adoption.
