I wonder if there anyone much still left who remembers an identical thread title from nearly 10 years ago?

Mumsnetters helped me so much 10 years ago that I wanted to share my new (with luck much shorter) journey with anyone who remembers.

So answers on a postcard... were you here back then? What am I blithering about, where am I going on 24th May and who with...I won't ask if you care because I doubt I'll want to hear the answer as I'm ridiculously excited!

I was here! (Not quite exactly ten years ago, but it will be ten years in October, and I remember reading about/catching up with your story). Can't believe it was that long ago actually.

Have a good trip wherever you're going!

I've only been here <counts on fingers> seven years but if you are going on a long haul trip then I am extremely excited for you!

I was here many years ago. If you're talking about what I think then I'm shaking my PomPoms for you!

I'll try to find the original thread - it is momentous for no-one except me and DS

I wonder if anyone will recognise themselves on that thread?

My goodness, there are some old names on that thread!

Are you adopting again?

I wasn't here 10yrs ago, I'm a newbie of 6yrs!

Kewcumber Mon 09-May-16 23:30:46

HA ha - good lord I'm 51 - my days of little ones are gone now. I did apply for another about 6 years ago but become suddenly very ill and had to give it up (reluctantly) too late now...

No, I'm taking DS back to see where he came from. Hoping to get him an invite to visit the orphanage he lived in. He (and I) are very excited and I am very panicky!

He asked me last week "Are you going to cry Mum?"

"Yes son. Buckets. And constantly - brace yourself"

Janet Jackson is having her first at 50!

You're going to want to bring them all back with you if you do go to the orphanage aren't you? I would and I'm not overly maternal.

Only been here a few years but I smiled as soon as I saw your thread because I knew what it meant! Wishing you both a safe, positive, exploration and a really good time together smile

OMG I was around, is it really 10 years? Wishing you both all the best for the return trip.

Lovely story. What a lovely boy you have. Well done!

I was there in another guise..... Have an amazing trip!

I've not been around for ten years (too young wink), but I've read your story and seen heaps of your advice, which I expect will be very useful in the future. Enjoy.

Thank you - am beginning to panic a bit now!
