Nervous about starting visits soon

DW and I are starting visits soon.
I think I had been going through the adoption process expecting to be told it wasn't going to happen. Until last week when we were told when we were starting visits and suddenly the nerves have started.
What if he doesn't like me or our DCs or DW. What if we meet him and we love him then it doesn't work out.
Suddenly it seems very very real.
I'm hoping someone has advice on what we should expect or how it was for them. Or if they would have done something differently.

It is very very unlikey that it wouldn't work out for you from the legal POV.
I'm sure he will like you all. He has waiting for so long for his forever family that he will likely be (depending on age and background) quite positive about meeting you even if a little apprehensive.
Our intros went very well. Our SW encouraged us to take the lead from day one which really helped us all. Nothing I would have changed.
Good luck.

How was it? We are a few months behind you but it would be good to hear about a recent experience.
