I have had a request to clarify what I mean when I refer to the window.
When I went onto the wait list for my agency, the predicted that they would give me a referral within 3-5 months. That period, the 3-5 month mark in waiting (for me, it is April 16-June 16) is referred to as "The Window."
Some people are given referrals before they enter "The Window," and some are matched after they exit "The Window," but on the whole, Gladney gives most referrals within that 3-5 month time frame.
Sorry for not clarifying that sooner:)
