  1. I'm curious to know what other againers have done for childcare during the placement days of a BOG situation. Especially out-of-state againers. It seems like having your child with you the whole time is not a good idea (too distracting) and switching parents all the time seems like it might be disruptive to the placement relationship-building process, but does that also mean that while you're dropping everything to hustle down to Texas that you're also calling on a friend or relative to join you in Texas as fast as they can? Do you hope you can hire a professional childcare provider for a few days (seems like that would be stressful to your older child, plus some small towns might not offer that service reliably)? Do you leave your child at home with friends while grandma flies to your house as fast as she can to take over childcare responsibilities and then they both fly down to join you after placement?? What have others in this situation done? What would you recommend doing? If we get a match that has a bit of advance warning, I feel like we can work this out, no problem. It's the DROP EVERYTHING AND GET TO TEXAS AS FAST AS YOU CAN scenario that has me wondering if our child is one of the things we're supposed to "DROP." It would be nice to have a contingency plan in place just in case.
