Thanks, Gracey - we actually have signed a helper with Arrow. She is scheduled to start in mid-September, but of course, we aren't really sure how long immigration will take. My mother is coming to HK the first week of October, so I am guessing she will have to do most of the helper training if I'm too big to get about easily by then.

We liked a few of the candidates we interviewed with Arrow, but the trainer helped direct us to one in particular - she is supposed to be good with newborn babies, so we'll see! I'm hoping for the best :-)
