We are currently "waiting" for our child from China. We still are working to complete our dossier, but it is moving along nicely. We are doing special needs, so our time is uncertain and may be impacted by many variables. Our agency bases "wait estimates" and placement order on the date our medical checklist was submitted. This was 2 months ago. Our likely wait time will be 1-2 years from that date. I would like to begin to purchase some items now, so that we can do this gradually during our wait period. It will help financially (look for deals!) and also will help to not stress to run and buy everything all at once later. PLUS it is just fun and makes the process a little more exciting and real than just paperwork! Where I am going with this............. What items would you suggest looking for first? We will be welcoming either a boy or girl age 2 or under. It is unlikely that the child will be under 1 year by the time he/she arrives home.
