Just been approved at matching panel YAY!

It has been less than 12 months for approval and matching, meet my daughter next Thursday afternoon.

Not bad for an overweight, 40 something, singleton!! Good luck to others facing panel soon, it really wasn't that bad. x

Thanks everyone

Cheltenhamgirl, I went through an L.A not my own but a neighbouring one which meant I could have an in house match as I don't live in their borough.

Good luck
