No progress on the contract front yet. I had to switch attorneys because the one I had originally decided on had some absences coming up and he told the agency that it would cause a 3-4 week delay in the process. When I had talked to him he didn’t think it would cause any delay. Obviously the delay isn’t going to work as we want to get this over with. So I switched to another attorney, who I was initially really impressed with because she took the time to call me on the weekend to go over a few things and confirm we can work together. Then I found out that she’s out of town from this Thursday until next Wednesday. So even though my IFs attorney said she would get the first draft of the contract to my attorney early this week it’s not likely to be reviewed until the end of next week and I won’t have the two hours necessary to go over it with my attorney until the following Thursday, so 2 weeks from tomorrow. We had hoped to have contracts done by Oct., but there’s basically no chance of that happening now. What that means is that we will have to push our transfer date back. I had hoped to get it done before Nov. 10th due to a busy family schedule next August. The medication protocol is anywhere from 3.5-5 weeks so we would have needed to start meds at the start of Oct. In order to do that we have to have contracts signed.
I talked to B & R about waiting until mid December to transfer if we couldn’t get it done before Nov. 10th so I wouldn’t be due in August and bless them, they were completely fine with waiting. They are seriously the best. I know they’ve been waiting for this for a long time and they didn’t even bat an eyelash when I asked if they could wait even longer. I even made sure to check with the clinic to make sure they did transfers in December as I have hear that some clinics are closed that month. My coordinator there said not to worry because they do schedule transfers through mid December. Perfect!
B & R have booked their trip to Bend! They’ll be in Bend for 3.5 days in mid October! I’m so excited to meet them in person. I hope I live up to their expectations LOL It’s humbling that someone would fly halfway around the world just to meet you.
Hopefully I have a contract update soon!
