I figured I'd pull my answer out of the TTC thread for easier reading.
First, thanks for the compliments! we got super lucky with our kids
As for your question, the fact that you are looking to adopt from the state does change things (btw, that would not be considered a domestic adoption, but rather a foster-adopt. its just semantics, really, but it'll help you to know the terminology when seeking info). When you are adopting from foster care, things get a lot more flexible. You generally can continue TTCing (we did for over a year), but depending on your situation and case worker a pregnancy may or may not impact a match.
If you have any other questions about the process, don't hesitate to email me (ec371 at aol.com) or just post 'em here. The process to become a foster parent is the same as to adopt from foster care so i'm quite familiar
best of luck at the info session tomorrow!
