As reported elsewhere, I started a new full-time job this past Monday, after a full year of unemployment. I'm working as Adoption Coordinator for the Jewish Child Care Association, an agency that provides services to children in foster care, some of whom end up being adopted.
I'm really enjoying my new job so far. I'm learning a lot about foster parenting and adoption, and think I'll be able to contribute very well in this position. And, of course, every family has a story and reading about them is great for someone like me who is insatiably curious.

In sum, so far so good. The pay is lousy (I'm actually going to be making less than I was when I wasn't employed) but the work is good, there's health insurance, and I just feel so happy to have a job!
