Link link link!

April 10, 2014

Finally, some good news to share. I have been linked with 2 lovely boys from the LA.

I’m not sure whether I’m technically linked because I think that happens after I meet (and impress) their social worker but I feel so positively about this link.

When I read their profile, I was completely drawn to them. The older sibling is a little older than I originally intended to look at but it just felt very right. Now I am super excited and waiting to hear from their social worker to get a meeting booked.

Exciting times!

Going national

March 20, 2014

My SW has finally admitted defeat and decided that she needs to look nationally to help me find my family.

In the past couple of months, I have had social workers express interest in me as an adopter but at pre linking couples were always chosen instead of me. My social worker was always to positive and sure each one would work out but it never turned out that way.

Last week, after another couple of children not being linked with me, she said she doesn’t feel that the LA have the children for me. I am not sure whether this is true or whether she thinks it might be easier to get linked with another agency.

On Friday, my profile was sent out to agencies nationally and I was sent a few profiles to consider. I have now seen 6 and enquired about 5. Unfortunately, I haven’t heard anything back from any of them yet. I continue to be amazed at how slowly things move. I would assume the SWs want these children matched as fast as possible but it seems that their workload makes it slow to even get sent details on children.

I am hoping that with looking nationally, things will move on more quickly now. I am scouring be my parent and trying not to get too excited about all these gorgeous children.
