I just wanted to send a quick reply to say that we feel
for you and understand how heart breaking it is.
We went through the same situation in march.
Almost identical, a little bub with medical conditions etc
We invested every thing we had in the possibility, went
to our GP to discuss the condition and management of it.
We agreed to have our file put forward and then on the
day of the board meeting we waited all day for " the call"
we finally had it at 4pm saying we weren't chosen.
it was so difficult to process. But then like yourself over
time we felt that it wasn't meant to be and this little bub
was in the home that was meant for them.
I just wanted to give you some very strong hope as
6 weeks after that we got "the call" and were allocated
our daughter. She had been with us 7 months now.
I head this story time and time again, and once you are
put forward once then it is so often the case you are matched
soon after. Everyone I have met over the years in the
program said to me that it was a very good sighn being
put forward and that it meant we would be matched soon.
We were too down to believe it for a while and then settled back
into the wait and then got the biggest suprise.
Our social worker actually told us quite recently quite candidly that
it is often the case that they out a family forward to
get them known out there and then a match follows soon
once your file has been seen around the offices.
I think this is very very good progress and I am sure
we will hear good news from you in the near future.
Have a goid Christmas break with the knowledge
that you are just that bit closer
