Have good hols Nicky!

JO - I sent you 100 credits then realised that you're not a charter memeber so can't use them anyway...well, it's the thought that counts!!!  ;D

I see that my combine harvester lyrics pushed onto a new thread! YAY we're on number 2!

Hi all,

Now that we have had our first home visit form the SW I feel elligible to join this thread, not that I have not been reading it anyway. The visit went well, the SW was really nice, very friendly and put us both at ease, all in all quite a good experience. We both feel quite excited now about moving forward and doing something positive with our lives both for ourselves and whoever may come into it. After years of stagnation going through IVF it good to see a way forward. Next stop the preparation course and we were told to expect to hear about this in about a month, as we are going away for a fortnight between now and then the timing sounds just about right.

Looking forward to talking to you all

Im not sure about if everyone gets a panel date when they start home study, the others should be able to tell you that.
Things are a little different for us as we have little man already here ;)

I think when we went through fostering process we did prep course and then after a couple of home visits we got a provisional panel date :)

Hi All

Suzie good luck for tomorrow and hope your Panal Date is really soon.  :)

Epona- Glad your first home visit went well?

Our SW said quite early on that they were going to get the date booked in as it gets busy so am unsure it is is standard process.

Hello to anyone I've missed!  ^Cuddle^

All's good with us, as I said we were busy decorating all weekend (in fact poor DH is still off work and upa ladder painting!!!) but at least we weren't missing any sunshine!  ::) Hope this weekend is better as we've got family staying and we have outdoor stuff planned!
HS feels like it is pretty much finished and we're busy going through the paperwork and signing all the different parts of Form F off... feels amazing to think we're finally getting near to panel - 4 weeks and 6 days today... not that I'm counting!!!  ::)  ^roflmao^

have a good day all
lots of love
Sarah

HI Everyone
I took some time out for a while but back agin.
Sarah thanks for your pm - sorry I hadn't replied sooner.

Well I'm in a quandry! I had a lovely initial visit from a sw and then had the open evening which was great. We were told to wait until our sw had called us before we wrote a letter to the head sw to get into the June classes.
3 weeks went by and heard nothing so I 'phoned and the sw thought she'd already phoned us!! So now we've missed the deadline for June and can't get in until Sept!  ^tantrum^ I don't know whether I should change and go with a local VA now. We would like a sibling group of 2, preferably one under 4 but ideally both - I'm not bothered but I think dh would like 2 under 5's. I was devasted and felt very let down. I've heard good things about this LA and a bad experience too but have been highly recommended by a friend about this VA.
I just don't know what to do!! ^scared^
Love Cath xx

Hi Ladies

Hope your all well- thinking of you all

I cant believe our 2 have been home for a month now! its flown over- DH has been back at work for just over a week now and things are great!

Cath- yes the VA could approve you however they dont have their own "children" as such they get the harder to place ones so if your not a white british coupld then jump with a VA! (hope i dont offend anyone with my wording!  :) )

Daisy- for intros you need to take the while time off plus i would advise also 2weeks off from when a child comes home- my DH and i did 12days of intros and my dh took 4full weeks plus 2days (our intros started ina  thurs!)

hi everyone

sorry for going awol for a few days, i needed some head space and time to think things through and thought it was time i faced up to things. i have decided i cannot carry on with this line of things as i still feel the ttc side is unfinished. it wouldnt be fair to the agency, the children placed with us and also to ourselves if i ignored these feelings and carried on. still need to call the sw and explain but am worried they will cross us off their lists forever  :-\

i wanted to wish you all lots of luck for your journeys and i may be back sometime in the future.

thank you all for taking care of me here and for all the wonderful advice you gave me.
