The first time Jonny & I were asked “what type of child we were hoping to be matched with” was from a social worker at an adoption evening event. Our answer was simple (and without much thought) we just wanted a child, any child.
The website is a place were approved adopters can view profiles of children that are in need of been adopted. Rachel informed us that children placed on this website often had more complex needs which is why they are on there. However, we shouldn’t let that stop us registering and having a look ourselves. It didn’t!
A few days have now passed since the ‘catch-up’ meeting with our social worker Rachel. All-sorts run through my mind. Did we show enough excitement when we were told about the links? Surely Rachel saw the excitement on our faces. Me and Jonny looked at each other with a huge smile when we were told…
I had previously thought that if the meeting was just a ‘catch up’ meeting then I would feel slightly deflated. On the contrary I felt elated.
