Introductions - day two

So, we have done two days of intros. They have both gone well.
I hadn't got a clear idea in my head of what intros were like - in my "nightmares" there would be lots of SW sitting around on sofas whilst we try to amuse a child on the carpet and they all suck through their teeth..

I was so pleased to find that the child's SW visited for the first half hour or so, and then it is just us, our (lovely) FC and the child.

Can't quite believe we are at this point, but then it seems a lifetime since we filled in our registration of interest.

Congratulations! It’s actually happening for you and very soon you will all be home together. Such exciting times.

Well done, even better when you get to do the home leg. How long are yours for?

That's so good to hear. I find introductions quite hard to imagine so it's great hearing how it's going for you. Enjoy breakfast and the weekend.

Oh many congratulations - so pleased for you and your new little family.

We've been given a draft plan so we know what to expect. It's quite good & we're not going to be at FCs all day every day which I think is also a good step; slow and steady wins the race, LO is only small.

A friend went through intros about 6 or 7 weeks ago & it was 15 hour days for 10 days confused although, her LO was a lot older

Hi @topcat2014. I’ve been thinking about you! Hoping things are going smoothly for you and the weekend was ok. Well done on finally getting here, you’ve had a long slog so far smile best wishes.

Introductions is such a strange mix. Our FC are ace, but I still want them to be over IYSWIM.

It is a strange bubble - even though we are at home each day (FC 30 miles away).

Two days to go..
