Hi guys, our matching panel is in 3 weeks so I produced a little booklet based on all our training and various readings to give to our friends and family, a kind of introductory guide to why our parenting is going to seem bats*t crazy to them.

I'm not an adoptive parent yet, so maybe it's all useless, but I thought I'd share it anyway! You can download it from my blog.

Abe, that is utterly amazing! Thank you. Is it really ok to just download and share? Fantastic work! We're hoping to have our LOs come home in August so this will be very usefulness!

Thank you so much for writing this 'in a nutshell' guide for friends and family. It is so lovely that you shared it here.
(Skips off to print multiple copies to give to every adult likely to come in to contact with our future DCs!)grin
