I got confirmation yesterday that our paperwork has indeed left for South Korea (on 7/23)! For me, this feels almost like the positive pregnancy test :) The expected wait time for a referral is up to 9 months at this point, so unfortunately we're looking at a longer wait than we were hoping for. However, this is always subject to change, so who really knows?! We are almost done with our support letter, and will be sending that out soon. We are so thrilled to finally be in the "wait" stage!
