A reality of international adoption is that there are long periods of time when adopting families are simply waiting, with no paperwork left to do and little information coming to them (although of course things are moving forward). We know that many families find this wait time passes more quickly if they use it to become more familiar with the country of their child-to-be. You might consider taking a language course, reading books — both fiction and non-fiction — related to the country, learning more about its culture, and making contacts within your own community with people from that country. You can also go to the TDH Canada site to learn about the humanitarian and child advocacy projects carried out by our national organization.
