Are we all getting an MN message during intros like a telegram from the queen or is it just Italian because she basically keeps the Adoption board open? grin wink

Hels - I do actually think grandparents seem to go through a different bonding process - its less responsible somehow and therefore I think they don;t over thinking things. My mum was pretty much devoted to DS from day 1 too. Despite having desperately tried to talk me out of it before she met him!!!!

I remember my dad sitting back and saying over and over "I can't believe how well this little girl fits into the family" - he was pretty much smitten straight away smile

Congratulations!

My parents were smitten too, from the start.

So much so that my sil is still convinced (20 years later) that ds1 is favourited over her dd (they are about the same age).

My mum has to be reminded on a regular basis that they are adopted - we had a bizarre conversation about how ds must have inherited dh's teeth last week.

This is a lovely thread! Congratulations!

Ooooh gosh, I dunno. I keep meaning to Namechange to something apposite and pithy.

This is my newby-hanging-about-on-the-board-information-gathering-don't-want-to-out-myself name. As opposed to my several making-rude-comments-on-AIBU names. grin

I'm also really paranoid about security so I'll probably Namechange once matched...

Call me whatever you like smile.

Sorry Italian, didn't mean to hijack your thread.... blush

Hope intros are going well for you.... We are on day 6 tomorrow, hoping to take them home soon.

MrsBW no hijack. It's great to hear.

Hey. Italian, you can stop averaging your posts with, "I am not yet an adoptive parent" now grin

lornemalvo Tue 20-May-14 21:19:19

Aw. Fantastic. Enjoy.

devora I thought I would ease in gently with "I am new to adoption....! wink
