Hi Nat

I'm afraid I'm living in Staffordshire and I can't speak for all the others. There are only a few of us on the Adoption thread, we generally post onto "Starting the Journey" to keep up with each other's progress. Please feel free to join us on there.

Have you been given any reason for the long wait for a social worker, do they have a shortage in Essex?

Hoping your wait isn't as long as they say.

Hi Nat

I'm not in Essex (was an Essex girl once upon a time though!). I am in the West Midlands.

We had to wait 5 months post course to be assigned an SW. The reason for our wait was that the Local Authority had an influx of 5-8 year olds and we are going for a sibling group under 4.

As Cindy saiys we all post on the starting the journey thread to share experiences and keep up to date, feel free to join us.

Good Luck

Love
