Hi girls

Thought I would start a new thread as we seem to be posting in lots of different threads at the minute and some of them are over 12 months old! Any chance one of the global mod gods can lock it off (thanks)?

Becky - good luck for the course, you will find it really interesting. Must be a good day as that is when we start our home study part too.

My SW has said that he thinks we will go to panel in Feb and then given that we are looking to take a sibling group of two children that we should be matched relatively quickly. So my dream of next summer off work should be a reality! You watch though, just because i'm off, we won't have a summer like this one!!

Virginia - Thanks for your IM, I have responded directly to you.

BevH - not sure if you are still considering this as an option, hope you are keeping well and that you and Garry both enjoyed the big 40.

I'm not sure who else is still lurking on the adoption pages either looking to start or like me and Becky are starting on the journey. It would be great to hear from you all.

It is difficult to share some of the information about adoption because of protecting the process, but I will share as much as I can.

Good luck
love

Carol and Mel

Thanks for your good wishes, but it looks like the hiccups are continuing.

We had a phone call at nine o clock to say he was sick. It seems like we have been allocated the social worker from hell as all he seems to do is be on holiday or be off sick. Hopefully if it all goes to plan we should have the kids in April which means it will have taken 14 months in all, but it is now 4 months since we finished our course without any further progress.

He is due round again next Wednesday, so watch this space!

Love

Well news from Social Services. Our Sw is now going to be on long term sick so won't be able to do our case, so we have now officially been reallocated to another social worker who will be contacting us in the next few days to get the ball moving again.

Thankfully this time they didn't have to wait for me to call them, they actually rang me.

The allocations manager has said that if god forbid something goes wrong with this allocated SW then she will personally deal with our case.

So no SW visit as per the calendar tomorrow, but hopefully a whole series of appointments will be sorted by the end of the week.

Hope everyone else on the adoption journey is doing well.

I'll keep you all posted.
Love

Well at long last things are finally moving. I was so nervous today, didn't really know what to expect.

She has basically set up six dates with us to do the assessment. Next week I am having my individual meeting with her, when I will have to talk to her about my childhood, education, employment, relationships etc. I also have to prepare a written piece on this too.

She's taken alot of details from us today and is now starting to generate some of the stuff that we will need to do.

I am feeling alot more relieved that things are finally happening ;D. Will wait to see what the rest of the process brings but just pleased to have got this far now ;D.

Will keep you all updated. Thanks for the good wishes.

Love

I have just seen your bio at the bottom of your message OMG I can't believe I have missed your news.

Can understand the scared feelings, but have my fingers toes and everything crossed for your scan.

Love
