We have a provisional panel date ShockShockShockShockShock

I don't post much but subject to our second opinion visit we are going to panel for approval soon.

Don't really discuss it much in RL outside immediate family & friends but I'm soooooooo excited.

Then let the matching wait begin

Fantastic! Hope all goes really well for you.

Wonderful Smile Best of luck!

Thankyou. Can't quite believe we've got this far. My childhood, birth children and pets have all proved challenges but our social worker has waved her magic and turned our seemingly chaotic life into a report of positives and strengths.

Good luck, mine was 3 weeks ago. No where near as scary as I thought it would be. Relax and good luck x

Thanks again for all the positivity. Actually starting to get excited (and letting myself hope and plan). Obviously it can be a NO but SW says she wouldn't be taking us to panel if she had any concerns. She's even said she likes our dogs Shock

I'd be surprised if they say no if the SW has put you forward. There is a huge amount of work involved to get you to panel and so if they thought there was a chance of a No they would be sorting those things out before you got a panel date confirmed. Ours picked over everything then when it went to the manager they came back with even more which they both said was just absolutely about dotting I's and crossing T's but then we ended up with a very quick appointment on panel day as they had everything they needed and more so it was relatively quick so much less stressful! It's so exciting getting that date, it a massive milestone!
