Time flies

September 15, 2014

I haven’t updated for a while because I have been just a little bit busy. I feel a bit bad as some of the key times have been missed but children really do keep you busy!

All in all, my experience has been very positive. Move in day (on a Saturday – thank you social worker) went smoothly and everything felt very natural right from the start. I think this is largely a testament to the fantastic work the social worker and foster carer had done with the boys before the move. They, mostly, understood what was going on and were ready to move on. There have been some tough times which I intend to write another post about but largely I can’t complain.

The boys have lived here for over a month now and things get better every day. In fact, just the other day I overheard them talking to each other and they said something which I say all the time. That certainly put a smile on my face – definitely my children!

We had our first placement review and everyone is really happy with how things are going. We continue to have support from the behaviour team but this is mainly as a precaution for expected attachment difficulties rather than feeling hugely necessary.

I will try and update the blog with key dates (like the second review later this year) but sometimes there’s not much to say. We get up and have breakfast and do things that every family does so there isn’t much to tell in the respect.

Time really does fly when you’re having fun 🙂
