The last few weeks have been a blur of emails, paperwork and appointments (meeting with the foster carer, transitions training, and meeting with the medical adviser), but all is going really well and we’re due to attend Matching Panel the week after next. We’ve also received a DVD and photos of Lily – I know I’m bias but she’s adorable.
The nerves are really starting to kick in now, mostly because we’ll be meeting the same Panel that deferred us last year at Approval Panel, and I just don’t know what I’ll do if they say no. Lily’s SW has assured us that it’s highly unlikely at this stage and that if there was any reason for anything other than approval it would have been flagged up ages ago. I hope she’s right.
In the meantime we need to finish getting Lily’s room ready, take some head shots of us to go into the transitions book and make a DVD of us in our home, all in time for Panel.
