While I don't post often on here I do look to this site as my first choice when I need to know anything. I've also posted various questions during our prep stages, when going to panel etc under a couple of user names.

I really wanted to acknowledge the generous help and support I've received here during our journey. We now have siblings tucked up in bed who have been with us for 7 weeks and the IRO support to apply for the full AO on the 12th of December which we will be doing as its going brilliantly well so far.

While the wait to get a link and match was hard and then to matching panel and starting intro's I've found comfort in the shared stories and experiences of many posted here. When we started intro's and I didn't feel the immediate bond that I expected to after waiting and wanting to me a mum for so long and got upset I came here to read other stories and it made the difference. I could go on be needless to say for me and I'm sure many others this section is an invaluable place of information and support when needed through what is at times a multi facilitated experience of ups and downs.

While we are still early days and its going beyond everyone's expectations I'm sure this site on mn will continue to be a helping hand in future when needed given our children are only 2 & 3 years so its likely the hardest challenges are yet to come. Really just a big thank you from me to those who take the time to share their experiences and offer a hand of support and encouragement the newbies or new parents that really need it .
