Hope the intros go well! We're also waiting to hear about our first "short-term" placement - probably coming tomorrow. Boy aged 2. Trying not to plan too much in case it doesn't happen!

I know what you mean bottersnike- you don't want to think about it too much in case they don't end up being placed with you. Just waiting for a phone call to go and meet them- that is if things haven't changed iver the weekend xx
