    Hi Muzzy
    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.

    Hi Eskimo81,

    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.

    Kind Regards,

    Bubbles

    Default Still waiting for invite

    Hi everyone,

    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.

    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.
