Info session today EXCITED!
Info session today EXCITED!
i was just wondering how your information session went? Did it take you long to get an invitation to the info session? We have just started the process and are waiting on our invite, first of many waits in this process. I hope we can support each other along the way as this forum seems very quiet now.
My husband and I made our initial telephone inquiry in February 2013 and we were invited to the May information session three months later. Our two day training session was in August that same year. It took one year exactly from training days to board approval. Everyone's journey varies in time and it depends on many factors, so it's nice to hear different stories.
I noticed that you mentioned to Muzzy that this forum is rather quiet and it does often get this way because often there are lulls in the process and people don't have much to report. But please know that we are here if you need us because many of us know how lonely this process can be at times. We also enjoy hearing about peoples' progress and are genuinely excited for them.
As for us, we were approved last August and it has been six months of waiting. We just missed out on a bub before Christmas. I guess it wasn't meant to be. Our social workers are very optimistic that we will get a call. We live in hope.
Take care Eskimo and remember there's no harm in calling the office to see how long the wait may be and you could also ask to go on a cancellation list if you're happy with short notice.
We were put on a waiting list last November yet we still haven't been invited to a session
I spoke to our local office this week, and the lady was fabulous and helpful, but basically said I'm definitely on the list and just need to keep waiting.
So! Those who remember me. We were waiting for the invite for the info session! Well we got one! It would have been when muzzy went. I have some surprising exciting news! IM PREGNANT!?!!! We are excited. Shocked. And beyond thrilled!! As is miss 3. I am 25+5. So I wish you all the best! And send some prayers your way! Xxxxxxx
After many many years of disappointment we would like to finally share our wonderful news. We have a four month baby boy!!!!!!!! We are so silly with excitement. I had two days to finish work and we meet with the office tomorrow and begin transition on Monday. My husband and I never thought this day would truely come. It is even better than we had pictured it!!! We are so happy and can't wait to meet our son.
I wish you all the very best for your journeys and it's true...never say never!
I have silently followed your journey on this thread and just wanted to congratulate you! Enjoy every moment!
Thank you SoThisIsLove and Penny Dreadful. We really are soaking in every single moment and it's even better than we ever dreamed it would be.
A big congratulation Bubbles . It is so amazing when it finally happens.
FYI: I don't know your location in Melb but we are part of an adoption and Pernament care Playgroup. We meet on the first Thursday of each month in Northcote. We just had a new member last month with a gorgeous 5 month old boy. You can PM me if you are interested.
