Newbie on road to adoption

Hi all,

Looking to chat and potentially make friends with others who are in the same boat or have any wise words to give!

Myself and my partner had a visit from an Adoption Agency last week so we are right at the very beginning of the process.

We don’t have any children currently and think we would like to adopt older children - between ages of 2-7, and perhaps a sibling set of up to 2. I’m wondering if anyone on here has experience of adopting a child of around 7 years old?

Hoping this may be a place for me to chat because at the moment we are trying to tell as few people as possible! Feeling a bit nervous but excited at the same time.

I'm also looking to hear more about people's adoption experiences. Me and DH are considering finding out more information about adoption.

We have 3 birth child, the youngest of which is 3. I'd like to hear from others who are new to the process and also those who have expieneve of being successful in the process despite already having birth children.
