We are one of two families short-listed. Wish us luck, and then tell me to get off my arse and tidy the flat so it doesn't look like a baby accident waiting to happen and a slum. smile

Oh how exciting ... how old is she?

edam Thu 09-Oct-08 14:45:58

Wow, hope you get chosen!

We already have a DS cikecaka, hence the extreme hazard (in social worker eyes) for a younger child of toys shock at floor level. grin

She's just coming up to 10 months Colditz.

TBH I think it's a bit of a long-shot. She isn't in our local authority and I suspect that they other family is the family that they really want and we are there to prove that they have searched for the best family possible. That happened to us quite a bit when we were waiting for DS.

OOh oOOH ooh ooh oooh Good luck.

Am VVVV excited for you and crossing fingers and toes. Bloody nerve wracking isn't it!

its like being pregnant and being told by Doctor "congrtulations you're pregnant (approved) now you may be pregnant for 9 months or two years and we may tell you now that you're going to be pregnant for 9 months but the month before you're due to give birth we'll change our mind"

Fingers crossed for you! How exciting and nerve-wracking.

Ohh, good luck, when my mum and dad had the house pre inspection before adopting me my dad had been making home brew in the "nursery". I can just imagine my mum's face now!
