There is a rumor floating around that an agency in Sweden is telling people that the wait is going to increase to 16-18 months. There is no info about when this time period starts (beginning of paperchase, LID, etc) or ends(referral, metcha day).
If we have to wait 18 month for a referral I think that I will go insanely crazy. I have pretty much accepted the possibility of 12 months, but 18 would put me over the top. You all will be finding me laying someplace dark in the fetal position talking to myself if we have to wait that long.
