So...We are officially on our way to becoming parents! We applied with our agency on Saturday. We received our approval email on Monday. Throughout this week we've received enough forms to fill out that we could wallpaper the house. If everything stays on schedule we should be in China this time next year (how cool would that be to spend my birthday in China becoming a mom?!). If we run into delays (which are inevitable) we may be in China anytime between August and October 2006, which is also fine as it may be cooler temperature wise in October. Either way we are just psyched. So excited! Let the paper chase begin! Ling Ling (and hopefully Mei Mei) here we come!
Oh, and duh, the job situation. Forgot to mention that. I've accepted an offer for a job I'm really excited about. But I'm also halfway through a very comprehensive (personality tests, multiple phone interviews already!) interview process for another exciting job. So we'll see which one turns out to be the best deal. One is commission only and for a small company, but has lots of perks. The other is a large corp that also has perks, but requires a great deal of travel. I'll update when I choose. Both have good income potential, so we know we'll be all set with the adoption as long as we are diligent in our savings and have some fundraisers like yard sales. We'll get there!
