[ - ] Our dishswasher, Bosch, is almost dead. Actually, I hate all my Bosch appliances...so many repairs. Does anyone have a dishwasher they are happy with? Looking for good capacity (not the case with Bosch), low noise (Bosch was great for this), and non-display front if possible. Thx. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] We have interviewed at 3 privates so far, with 4 more to go. Each one is so different, each DOA soooo different, and we haven't really gotten a great vibe from any of them. So far they all seem like "whatever, apply or not, we've got a million others applying." Or am I just being overly sensitive? Applied to Friends, Grace Church School, and UNIS. The whole process is yuck. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

LOL, I didn't hear that comment. Perhaps we got a better reception because we are an international family. [ Reply | More ]

Those are the three cavelier schools and you had them three in a row! You'll find other DOA's completely different. In my experience last year. [ Reply | More ]

i doubt you're overly sensitive. i think some schools really work to treat every applicant with respect, and some don't. the hard part is figuring out if the coldness of the application process is reflected in the school itself. sometimes it's not. doa at our old preschool wasn't our cup of tea, but once we got in, the school itself was awesome.

We had two single-parents-to-be in our homestudy group and three couples; it wasn't an issue at all. You don't really share everything at the meetings--that's left to the document and the details are between you and your social worker. The meeting took several months. We were in a group preparing for transracial adoption and worked with several social workers, including paperwork specialists. We were able to meet with adult adoptees who offered tremendous insight and were basically assigned books on transracial family issues to read and discuss. Yeah, it was a little much, but in the end we were much better prepared for the experience than any of our friends who adopted through different agencies--so it was definitely worth it. And, when we hit a big bump in the road, they were completely there for us. As for the timing, we adopted from China in 2004 when things were moving very quickly; it took eight months from paperwork submittal to referral and only two more before we flew to China. They have great follow up services as well (in fact I was there last week for a seminar). I can't recommend them enough. [ Reply | More ]

We had a wonderful experience with Spence-Chapin. We got a ton of support and have kept up a relationship with them (we adopted a "waiting child" from China, so do counseling with other prospective parents). Everyone was warm and supportive and just there for us--they even helped us orient our older biological child to the idea of a new sibling. Couldn't have asked for more. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Has anyone looked into Obama's personal income and net worth. How can he be worth so much if he has worked as community organizer, state senator and US senator. Those jobs do not pay high salaries. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

not a rich kid, got rich in the process of being a community organizer, state senator...not high paying jobs. And who even heard of him out of the state of Chicago in the last two years. Speaking engagements in 2005? Nobody knew who the hell he was! [ Reply | More ]

saw the convention and knew that he was a state senator from Chicago...big deal.... Who would have paid to hear him speak? Bought 1.65 million house in 2005. Again, does not make sense. I don't see state senators in New York purchasing homes at that value. That is major cash. [ Reply | More ]

Don't do it - you will be a single mom during internship. Would recommend TTC during the last year of residency or later (if you are young enough to wait). Signed, married to an internist. [ Reply | More ]
