Good Luck But just relax as well- if your house is done up to the nines they will struggle to see children in it, just present a tidied up version of how you live. They obviously like you or they wouldn't be coming out for a visit
Hi Sarahlux. We had a meeting today regarding a potential match and it went well. We will find out in a few days if we are moving forward. It did feel like the most important interview ever, just remember the question "why do you want his job?". Convert that to "why this child/these children?" and that's the question that was hardest for me to answer in words IYSWIM. Have a few ideas of how to answer that. And relax.... It was ok.
Yes it did feel like the most important job interview ever. It seemed to go well I think.
The things I thought they would bring up they didn't. Mine and my partners age has been brought up a few times by different social workers so I thought that may have come up but it never.
The child is still a baby and due to birth family there is a bit of uncertinaty about her future. They asked us why we would choose a child like that when we have the choice to pick a "perfect" child. That was the question I found the hardest.
Amazing! You must be on cloud nine! We had a call today and they've narrowed us down to the final 4 couples Now a waiting game for the linking panel (I think that's the term) to decide. Enjoy this time. You'll never forget it. Big unMNy hug to you and your family.
fantastic news. Really pleased for you. The 8 weeks may seem like ages, but the paperwork will keep you busy for a few days-and the tidying up- furniture shopping (if you haven't already) making a book or DVD for the little one- choosing and buying the little toy. Meeting FCs (if you do) the paediatrician it will soon disappear.
