We're waiting with a very similar time line as another family. We received our referrals within days of each other and entered the Taiwan court system within days of each other.
While we haven't hear a peep out of Taiwan, our friends received news that a hearing date has been set for their case. It is great to know that their case is being considered, but we would all prefer that it be happening much more quickly. Meanwhile, we have no idea about the status of our case and that doesn't necessarily mean it isn't being considered. It simply means we must continue to be patient and trust that things will all work out eventually.
So which is better: news or no news? Neither. The only news that is truly meaningful is news that a decree has been reached and a travel date set. That will be news!
