Introductions – day 2

Well, what a difference a day makes.

No tears today, no intense nerves on arrival, just a lovely day with the boys and a much more positive feeling at the end of it.

The day started with the introductions planning meeting. Initially we went through some formal paperwork, and then the parental responsibility stuff (basically I am allowed to make very few decisions without consulting social workers first but that’s fine by me). Then we went through the timetable for the next 2 weeks and discussed any issues that would arise – nothing major, very flexible and to be reviewed halfway through.

I found interacting with the boys much easier today as I felt less pressured. The foster carer is also amazing at wandering off or taking a step back when appropriate. We even managed a trip to the park (accompanied) which made the day less intense – we love the outdoors!

I now feel completely at ease about the next 2 weeks and can imagine the boys living here. I’ve even brought a couple of small boxes of their things home today and unpacked them – lovely stuff!
