If anyone is in the ATL area and looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested. Happy to chill all day but full of energy outdoors. 🐾 https://petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1159058?awo=Atlanta+Lab+Rescue&widget=false
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
Alright so there’s a thing called reclaim my status. If you had a reason why you lost status in the last year or two like COVID, baby, new job, etc. You need to submit some basic documentation and they give you that status for 3 months with a DRASTICALLY lower threshold to make the status permanent and even higher tiers are much easier to obtain during those 3 months. Google “reclaim my status Delta”
If you’re a parent of young children, what do you do to unwind? Need a hobby besides work and my toddler...
Any moms who really badly wanted a girl but ended up with a boy(s)? How do you feel now? Do you still want a girl? Would you try again? Does it matter really, or was it just in your head? Had a difficult relationship with my mom growing up, so always wanted that closeness with my future daughter. FTM having a boy and a little disappointed, but feeling guilty for that too. Difficult pregnancy so likely won't have another. But I want a girl. 🤷🏻♀️ Please no woke left gender drama responses. Thanks.

Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!

I on L1 visa which is expiring on Dec 1. My wife is on L2 and currently pregnant and due on Dec 19. My company has filed for an extension in August for me and thinks that there will be no decision until early next year. If my visa extension gets denied before December 1, does it mean that we cannot deliver our child in US? What is the norms for losing health coverage - do I lose it immediately?
How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks

Ladies, how do you know if your husband is a father material? My husband is in eager talks about us having children while I am on the fence. My dad took 80% care for me when I was young(cooking, cleaning, diapers, bottle feeding, etc) so my expectations for a father is way higher. My husband, seems to be still in the stage of transitioning from bachelor to husband, like he takes out trash, cook once per week, do laundry (no folding)when I ask. Not sure if that’s what it takes for me to predict.
Anyone here go to daycare as a child while your parents worked? Do you feel like it impacted your relationship with your parents today? My daughter goes to daycare while I work and I want to make sure we have a great relationship despite not being together 24/7.

Hi 🐠! My firm is willing to file an EB3 GC for me, however I’m from a highly backlogged country and was wondering what’s the realistic timeline for it from start to finish? The process seems to be stressful, to say the least. Alternatively, I have the ability to venture out into Canada (as I’m yet to pursue my MBA, after which I plan on pivoting into a diff. industry). What would you do?
