Hi we had our friend and family night on Thursday and my SiL told SW her GD was a CID. We never mentioned this as it wasn't our place. My mum now thinks this could affect our chances on being approved!? Could it? Or would SW have spoken to us there be then? X
Grand daughter and child in need ( ie on a ss cin plan i think .) If you are not directly connected to this child it shouldnt have any relevance to your application. P s some kids on cin plans are only on them due to disability etc so not always down to neglect etc
Thats correct flapjack, I do have baby regularly, every few months. Baby was on plan before birth, was classed as CAR child at risk, now is only Child in need!! I'm rather scared and worried about this.
But that wont reflect badly on you rather the opposite surely. Are the parents any risk ? That is the main issue imo. Ss will want to know that there will not be any risks to your adopted kids . But if there was then you would need to show that you would prioritise your childs needs above everything else. Exactly why does your mum think it will be an issue? I would speak to your sw next week and ask them to clarify things . If the child is now cin rather than child at risk then presumeably parents are engaging with ss ? Unless i am missing something i dont see this being a problem
Think my mums just worried and obviously has made me worry. Not seeing SW now till panel in April. Think baby was at risk due to mum putting herself in care as a miner. Friends told her it was cushy and got what they wanted. Little did she know. Obviously it goes without saying that AC would be my number 1 priority. Baby mum and dad are not bad people.
If they are concerned they will bring it up before panel. They will not go to panel if they think you will not be approved, It wouldve been best to flag this up at the beginning but too late to worry now so i would ring sw on mon and explain you didnt mention it as you felt it wasnt your place. Hopefully they will reassure you. But if it is an issue then they will be able to hopefully resolve it by panel date. Please let us know how it goes if you can x
I don't think it will be a problem but you need to tell SW the full story. If it looks like you are hiding anything it Doran't look good. If you are looking after this child on a regular basis it I'd s factor social services may need to consider.of your new child were very jelious of the baby what would hsppe ?
