Hi Everyone Just had to say that I don't really have any good techniques but would advise to play it by ear about what you say to whom, you get a little bit instinctive on this one as time goes by I think!

Hi Alison, What a nice surprise to hear from you so soon but sorry that you are feeling out of control again, I can understand what you mean by that! We had an initial interview with a social worker around Feb/March time, I guess it lasted 2/3 hours maybe. We both came away feeling slightly annoyed ...

Hi Grace, Alison, Thanks for your posts, they helped and I feel a bit more positive now. We went to our information day on Fri (yes Grace it was in Barnet) and I found it really helpful and encouraging, although I know that intercountry adoption will be a real challenge. One thing that bothered me s...

Hi Girls, Sorry I haven't been about much recently. To be honest I have been a bit low and this didn't make me feel like posting. Last October I went onto anti-depressants because I just couldn't seem to pick myself up after our last attempt, they helped but now I am slowly coming off and feeling a ...

Alison, I am so so sorry. What can I say except that it is such a blow yet again for both of you, just not fair. I hope that us being here helps a little. As Grace says just log on whenever you want and get some of it out of your system. We don't mind how long the posts are we have all been there as...

Hi Girls,
Just to say that I will be in Browns at 1pm tomorrow but will check board last thing tonight just in case anyone has any change of plans. Weather not looking too promising at the moment anyway so don't think we will miss not being outside too much!

Love Amanda x

Hi there,
1pm is fine for me, don't mind where we go at all.

There is St Crispins place/walk?, I think that is what it is called, which is just off Oxford Street with outside seating but am really happy to go anywhere.

Hi Girls,
Just to say that I now plan to be in London next Fri, 6th May and that a lunch/late lunchtime would suit me if anyone else can make it.

Take Care, Amanda x
