We contacted our agency this week. It appears that our file is still with MFA. We had to send a new letter to Astana based on a new adoption policy... so hopefully this will speed things up. In the agency's opinion, we are still likely going to Uralsk.
On the homefront, we have begun buying girl clothes ages 12-18 months....and girl's toys. Yannik is getting really excited as well. Seeying him with younger kids, we know that he is going to make such a great big brother ;0)
