I met my children today

Just that really!

My brain is so fizzy! When we applied last year we never thought we'd be here already. We have had these children in our hearts and minds for the last 6 months (SWs work slowly!) and I feel like I've been wishing my life away until today.
Wow. Just wow.

So so exciting for you! How did it go?
How long are they anticipating intros will take?

Wow that must feel amazing. Sounds like 2017 is the start of great things for you and the children. Happy new year x

Today was "soft intros" - proper thing starts next week for just over a week.

It was amazing. Lots of cuddles, and one of them running about after DH shouting, "Daddy, Daddy" nearly had me in tears!

Get as much sleep now as you can!

Thank you for sharing. Got a lump in my throat at your child running after their daddy.

Bless third little hearts.

Wishing you all a good transition.

Ah wow congratulations! I burst into tears about a minute after I walked into the foster carers house the first time, I hid in the hall with her a minute to compose myself, it was the start of "the year of tears" πŸ˜€ I was so happy everything and anything set me off, I'm not much better now 13 months on!

Enjoy every moment and take lots of pics as it flys by in a big blur.

Take care of yourselves, it's exhausting, amazing and terrifying in equal measure!!!!

So exciting X
