Yesterday my soon to be son's SW called to say that she couldn't make panel (she was double booked) and then this morning at 9am I got a call from SS to say that my SW couldn't make it either due to an injury.
I thought it was all doomed and that it was sure to be deferred but it wasn't and they said yes!
Hopefully meeting him on Monday - excited and terrified in equal measure!
Kewcumber, the fear/excitement is off the richter scale now at the thought of meeting him tomorrow! As an overeater I am glad to have found an emotional state where I actually don't want to eat. I went out for lunch today with my Gran which was lovely and she said afterwards that she'd like to see LO's room. Turns out it was all a ruse - there were about 30 friends, family and neighbours waiting to party. Not exactly how I'd have chosen to spend the day but actually it was great and I felt v loved and supported so I guess it was what I needed.
Ah dimples how wonderful. I have to confess I'm feeling a little deflated by the lack of celebration and keep comparing what it would be like if I were pregnant. I guess my friends and family have the excuse that we won't know until Tuesday if things are going ahead then if so intros on Thursday so no time.
dimples - I lost quite a bit of wait from matching to placement (which in my case was about 2 months!)
Yes be glad about the party, its a nice gesture. Quite often in adoption there isn;t a clear point at which an outsider can arrange such a thing - things proceed so slowly then theres a flurry of activity nd then its too late... very rarely can you catch the sweet spot of being fairly certain but before you are too busy/exhausted.
