Hi! I don't have any experience with adoption but I came in cos I saw harrow, not far from me. Good luck with everything and welcome to mumsnet :)

Welcome. Are you in contact with any other adopters through your prep course? Is there a adoption support group in your area? Ask your social worker.
I helped set up a support group in our town soon after we adopted our eldest two.

Good luck at panel.

Hi, my DH and I adopted our DD a couple of years ago. I grew up in Harrow although I don't live there now but we're often there visiting my parents. Am happy for you to message me if you have any particular questions Smile
