Question abt ADM signing off Matching Panel

Me again.
As many of you know, we have a BC. We have been told that if panel are unanimous in agreeing to a match, we are safe to tell BC, who will be dying to know the outcome.
Has anyone heard of an Agency Decision Maker disagreeing in this situation? Or holding things up?
Really don't want to risk giving BC false hope but as she knows panel date, waiting for a week after would be so hard, especially if we know what they said.

I have only ever heard of an adm delaying a ratification because they wanted something clarifying so i think it is vvv unlikely that it would happen tbh.
Have you got a date or still looking for a match ?

We told BC straight away. ADM rarely so against a whole panel and all the SW on your case.

Like flapjack i've only heard of adm asking for clarification on something. In 10 years i've not known an adm to go against panel's decision.
We told our dc panel's decision that day, and said the big boss had to sign the paper before we could meet baby next week.

What type of things are they wanting to clarify? Anyone know?

Its usually something they read in your PAR which sw did not expand on so they want to ask a question about it....it could be anything! And completely trivial....
Return plans for work
Plans for more children
Childcare
Health
Family relationships
Contact
The list goes on.......

Tell the child the whole truth. Panel have said yes but one more person needs to decide so we will know in a week's time.

Choccy so happy for you.
