I need to do something to get ready. Please tell me your best answers to these silly questions.
- When you get matched at what point do you start to tell family/friends/any birth children, and when is it OK to show a photo to close family or reveal the name? I mean do you need to wait until you get to panel or is it OK to do it earlier?
- How likely is it the panel at matching will say no (statistics anyone, please) and what do you say to work in that crucial stage as things start to happen but you still don't have an actual date to go on adoption leave! Please?
- At what point do you start decorating a room or buying things?
Wanting to get ready but can't yet! Hoping things will happen and when they do need to know how quickly I can do stuff.
Non adopters welcome to respond but adopters am really keen to hear what you did when you adopted.
