This has been one crazy busy, fun-filled and pivotal week for us. We’ve been pretty much non-stop all week, either organising and planning for the coming weeks, catching up with family and friends or furthering our experience with children. Plus we have had this weekend in London – we had tickets to the World Athletics Championships as well as to see The Book of Mormon and to have lunch at one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants.
But the most important thing about this week is also both the most exciting and terrifying! We have finally sent off our ‘register of interest’ forms to adopt! In the next 5 days we should get a phone call from our local county councils children’s services to get the ball rolling. I really can’t wait to get started with the whole process.
We met a couple this week who have recently adopted a beautiful 18 month old girl. Speaking to them really encouraged me that we are doing the right thing. They told us about the process, how it was for them and that yes it was intrusive and frustrating at times but it has been totally worth it. It’s clear how much their little girl means to them already.
I am really excited for Andy and I to get going and take those next steps to meeting our children, bring them home and build our family together.
