Eek, we have our first appointment arranged with a Social Worker!
We only submitted our Registration of Interest forms last week, which were acknowledged by letter received by us on Saturday, and today the Social Worker called to arrange an initial home visit! Friday, 23rd May!
I know the Government have put new guidelines in place to speed up the process, and Mr R convinced me they’d be in contact quickly but I really didn’t think, guidelines or not and convincing husband or not, that they’d be in contact in under a week and that our appointment would already be booked in. Now I’m under no illusions that adoption is a long process and this is just the first “easy” step, so I shan’t get my hopes up for the rest of the process happening as quickly as I’d like (assuming we pass this first visit and get to continue), but it feels great to be doing something positive towards creating our little family 🙂
