Hope: Lol @ Queen Becks – aint been called that in a long long time – its great to be back
Thank you hun for your story about your friend. We are hoping to be able to foster (with the intention to adopt) basically what that means is that they will let us foster our child before we adopt them. That way we have a better chance of getting a younger child. We will only foster on the understanding that the child we foster will be up for adoption, otherwise having to give them back after a few mths would break my heart. I hope the sickness is easing off somewhat for u hun, theres nothing worse than feeling so sick all the time, especially with Gage to look after …
Jayne: What do u mean the boys are nearly 2!!!!!! NO WAY!!!!!
I cannot belive that! Where oh where did the time go to??? Its not long ago u were posting pics of double buggies and which ones u were gonna pick … arghhhhhhh wayyyyyy too fast lol.
Franca: Hello and welcome … xxx how are u doing? You must be close to EC by now yes? Or have u already had it done? I was on Suprefact when I did my IVF hun, I know im a little late, but if there are any questions u need answering, ask away. Please come an let us know how ur getting on, an I can add u to our list xxx
Charlie: Welcome back Hun xxx When do u start tmt for your FET or are u still at the thinking about it stage???
OK, my ‘preparation to adopt’ classes. VERY informative, very true and we thoroughly enjoyed them all. On the last day we had 2 adopters in to answer some questions we had, they told us all the story of how they came to adoption and how the process was for them. There were MANY times when I welled up with tears (of happiness of course)
when they were explaining how they felt the very first day they met their son/daughter … it was so lovely to hear. One of the guys from the couple pleaded with us all to stick at this process, he said there will be times when u want to walk away and if it hadn’t been for his wife he would have walked a long time ago, but he said if u stick at it, the reward when u first hold ur child in ur arms, and when he calls you mummy/daddy – its worth every fight u put up to get them (that had me bawling lol)
Next stage for us now are the ‘police’ and ‘medical’ checks and giving 4 referees … we have to be sure we get them right as this is very important in the process of adoption, they rely a lot on what people have to say about you. Also my boss has to do a reference for me, but he is ok with this and has known throughout every stage of our adoption and all the treatment we had so is very supportive.
The checks should take about another 8 weeks now, so wont hear nothing until they have been done, then the home visits start … we are hoping to get it done once a fortnight and should only need between 6 – 8 visits, so maybe this will all be over for us by Oct/Nov (but we aint holding out any hope of that) then we have to get to panel … what a palava, but it will be worth it in the end …
Wow! Ive deff talked way too much today hehehe, ive a lot to make up for an u know me, once I start an I cant shut up LOL …. Better get back to work tho, catch u soon ladies
