I just received an email from our agency contact letting us know that we have a new case manager (not a surprise) and thanking us for our commitment (basically blowing smoke up my skirt) and letting us know that the July "Families Available" list was distributed and we are on it.
D & I had a really long talk - with emphasis on the word long and have come to the determination that we are not in any kind of hurry to get another placement. We need some recovery time, I need to get my career change going and get a little bit more school under my belt and we are also changing our profile. The child will have to be either up for adoption or closer to the .26 termination hearing and we are opening our age profile to 6 or 7 whereas before we stopped at 5, we have always been open to any race so we aren't changing that side of the profile and have decided that we will give the agency 6 months to a year (starting 8/1/08). Realizing that the agency does not have control as to who becomes available, if this avenue does not work we will look at domestic and international adoption. In fact, we will probably start investigating/start the process within the next 6 months, just so we don't loose any more time.
If one more person tells me - "Watch, now you'll get pregnant"..... URGHHHH.
