I use flats when at home, so far have only tried the OsoCozy 100% birdseye cotton. I like them a lot-- they dry fast on the line and are versatile (many different folds, can be used to stuff pockets).

This. It's been so liberating not having to rely on another person. That said, I still hope things go well with your gf, and you can have emotional support. Supportive of ttc/adoption plans is huge.

Yes, there is preference to place Chinese children with Chinese families.
