Today we went for our panel meeting. We met with 2 social workers to go over every step of the process again with the senior social worker present. She makes sure everything has been explained correctly and we sign a document giving permission for our profile to be used.
The panel meeting is the final stage in the screening process. We are now on file as fit to adopt. Yay! Last hoop to jump through officially over. Once again it was a very chilled session with lovely people. I seriously don’t know why people think this is such a terrible process..We were amazed when our social worker said we could have a baby as soon as next month. There are apparantly many babies waiting to be placed at the moment. I actually wish I could take 5, I hate the fact that so many kids are waiting for parents. We opted to rather wait until July for placement so that we can prepare nicely for our baby 🙂 all smiles at the moment.
