BikeRunSki Sat 17-May-14 07:46:08

This is a lovely thread. I work with someone waiting to adopt and have a little appreciation of the process and anxieties involved.

NationMcKinley Sat 17-May-14 08:08:22

Ah, congratulations! flowerssmile

AngelsWithSilverWings Sat 17-May-14 09:31:11

Congratulations! I'll never forget my first meetings with my two. Such special moments and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to think of other people having them.

Wonderful news!

Kewcumber Sat 17-May-14 09:35:19

Ooh MrsBW as well how lovely.

I am going to pretend that my first meetings with DS were warm and fuzzy, whereas in fact he took one look at me and screamed the place down and pretty much didn't stop during our first meeting!

Kewcumber Sat 17-May-14 09:36:43

I don't think I've been tireder in my life than I was those first two weeks. But even with all that it was so exciting, just being on the brink of a new life.

MrsBW yipppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! So very pleased for you. I am really glad things have worked out so great. We must meet up with our gorgeous lumps and go to the park!

Italian and Mrs BW, I'm beyond thrilled for you both. This is the start of the good times. Italian, I hope your dad is coping with the huge changes coming. Hugs all round !

mineallmine Sat 17-May-14 17:55:33

Dd auto corrected to dad, Italian. Although k hope your dad is happy too.

Devora Sat 17-May-14 19:01:22

At last!Huge congratulations, Italian and MrsBW.

It's ridiculous how much I want to see photos of these children and learn their names. I know I can't, but I feel we're welcoming them into the MN family .

CrispyFern Sat 17-May-14 19:03:15

Congratulations. smile

Lilka Sat 17-May-14 19:10:47

I know what you mean Devora I feel the same way! smile

This board really is like an online kind of family in many ways, and I know I've got emotionally invested in people's journeys. It's so wonderful to see after all these years (literally years on the board for you Italian!) everyone's dreams coming true.

It is a long for me! but that was because I was not sure, now I am so that is good! Thanks again, all. Devora have Pmed you!

FamiliesShareGerms Sat 17-May-14 22:13:39

Ooh, and congrats MrsBW too!

Maryz Sat 17-May-14 22:16:38

And I missed MrsBW too, sorry

More Congratulations flowerssmile

Hels20 Sun 18-May-14 07:04:41

Congratulations Italian and MrsBW - such wonderful news. So happy for you both.

Italian - by the end of the introductions, I was in love with my boy - but it has grown, even though he has become erm...naughtier as the months have gone by. At the first meeting, I knew he was right. My Mum says she fell in love with DS immediately - not entirely sure that is true - but she also felt a strong connection.

So happy for you both.

BitOutOfPractice Sun 18-May-14 07:44:52

Very many congratulations

Very best wishes & well done...

RhinosAreFatUnicorns Sun 18-May-14 16:43:46

Hope you're having fun Italian and MrsBW. Lovely lovely thread smile

A message from MNHQ! I now do feel very honoured. grin

namechangesforthehardstuff Sun 18-May-14 19:19:16

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

TulipsfromAmsterdam Sun 18-May-14 19:25:36

Just to add my belated congratulations to both Italian and MrsBW x


ha ha

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

What a great thing to say, can I put that on my CV!

Sorry name or NCFTHS or namechangesforthehardstuff what is the abbreviation for your name???

UnderTheNameOfSanders Sun 18-May-14 20:45:02

Hope all going well.

Kewcumber Sun 18-May-14 20:51:28

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!!!!

FamiliesShareGerms Sun 18-May-14 21:02:06

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

SmokyHeart Sun 18-May-14 21:20:11


Maryz Sun 18-May-14 21:36:40

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.

nervouslurker Sun 18-May-14 22:11:21

This is a lovely thread! Congratulations!

namechangesforthehardstuff Sun 18-May-14 23:16:40

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.

MrsBW Mon 19-May-14 21:05:38

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.

Devora Tue 20-May-14 21:06:26

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
