meal with other prospective adopters (mk2)

We've just got back from our second meal with the other prospective adopters from our preparation course. We had a lovely time, because these are other people that are going through the same things as us.

The next three panels have significance for the others we've been with. Just married couple are up for approval panel 2 weeks on monday. Racing ahead couple are going to matching panel 4 weeks on monday. Singleton is going to approval panel 6 weeks on monday.

We've seen photos of racing ahead couples baby boy. He's very cute and adorable. Very excited for them. We've been discussing all the things that they need to do, and what they need to buy.

It did remind me of all the conversations that M and I have had in the past 24hours, when we've suddenly realised that we might have a child placed in the new year. We've lots we need to do, some we ought to do, and some things we'd like to do. It seems a little overwhelming at the moment.

One step at a time and you will get there. Our parents raised us with much less "stuff" and I think we all turned out okay. (-; It really can be overwhelming.

it is overwhelming. Having done it recently, I can suggest getting as much stuff purchased and ready as possible. I dont regret having purchased a cot, changing table, toddler bed, toddler furniture, car seats, double pram etc. I needed all of it and much more when the 2 year old twins arrived. You dont need fancy gadgets and toys, but having the basics is a big help. xx
