Christmas has been and gone, and we are now in a new year, 2016! We didn’t expect to hear anything from social services over the Christmas period but thought we might have received an email or call in the new year. Nothing. So I emailed our social worker earlier this week, and yet more silence. So, feeling a bit like a stalker, I called the office. Our SW is still off sick and nobody thought to inform us. Humph! A promise for the Adoption Manager to call us back next week but I’m too impatient for that, especially given there were talks of a February panel date, so I emailed the SW that attended on behalf of our SW at our meeting with Lily’s SW. She called me straight back and confirmed that everyone was agreed they should proceed with taking us to Matching Panel to be come Lily’s parents. Oh my goodness, for the first time in a long time it feels like there’s light at the end of the tunnel! We have a potential link!
Several phone calls and emails later and dates were agreed for Transitions training, and meetings with the foster carer and Medical Adviser. A date has also been set for Matching Panel 🙂
Happy New Year everyone!
