Hello everyone, Its been on BBC this morning so you may have seen this

Sorry I've been lurking and not posting. We have a little news. Have read the CPR on a wondeful little one. Its been a bumpy ride to get to this point. We're meeting his SW next week. Its such early days, but its feeling so right. We have questions, but all concerns are around the child's birth family. Afraid to get too excited, just don't want to jinx it or make it harder if it does not work out. Having said that I cried every day of our xmas holiday as we knew about him before we went and had to wait to hear.

Take care all
Wendy x

O Wendy, everything crossed here too. I understand your need to protect yourself from disappointment but I hope so much that this is the child for you.

Can anyone tell me what the significance of the map is, and is it linked to changes in who can find out about children who are in the adoption system, please? I have looked on line and can't find anything but a friend said there were changes in the system?

The map shows where there are children waiting to be adopted, so I think the theory is that prospective adopters can approach the areas of most need first eg there are only 17 or fewer children in the whole of Devon, but there are 48 or more in Bristol, for example.
