We actually have some forward movement! Woohoo! I knew when we started this process early knowing we wouldn’t be transferring until late this year or early next year that there would be long periods of waiting. However, I thought the waiting would come after we got the screening and contracts done, not before. It’s not a big deal, but I was just expecting to be able to move forward until those things were done then wait. So now it’s nice to be making some progress.
I got an email from our agency coordinator a week ago asking to confirm some information so they can start working on contracts. She also asked that I reach out to the lawyer of my choice to see if they’re available to represent me. I got back to her quickly then emailed my lawyer to make sure she was able to represent me. I got a reply from her later that afternoon saying that she was “delighted” to hear from me and would be happy to represent me again. So all that stuff is squared away. Our agency coordinator got my lawyer the information she needed and I haven’t heard anything more yet.
I did eventually hear from the coordinator at the fertility clinic about scheduling the medical screening. It took some back and forth, but we got it scheduled for Monday October 25 at 1pm. I’m planning on flying into Portland that morning and then home that afternoon/evening. Right now the only flights that would work with timing is one that leaves here at 7am (arrives 7:47am) and a flight back that leaves at 9:15pm and arrives back home at 10pm. Neither of those are ideal and will make for a long day, but it’s totally doable and I will make it work. I don’t mind hanging out at PDX. It’s a nice airport, good restaurants, and I know where they keep the comfy chairs LOL
I’m glad we’re having some forward movement. Hopefully we can keep moving forward. I just got an email a few minutes ago that our agency coordinator is out of the office until Friday dealing with an unexpected family emergency so I don’t expect to hear anymore until at least then, but I’m sure it’ll be next week instead.
In family news our kiddos are currently camping with my parents and having a blast I’m sure. They come home Thursday and Friday we leave to go camping for the long weekend. We get home Monday, they have Tuesday off then start school on Wednesday. Soccer practices start for both of them on Thursday. It’s a whirlwind last week and a half of summer for them.
Hopefully I’ll have another productive update next week!
