    Hi Mave,
    Just wondering - have they kept in contact with you very much since approval?

    No, they haven't really, which we were prepared for.
    We heard from them to read over our unidentifying report, & got the official letter to say we are on the central resource exchange & that they'll check in with us in 3 months to see how we're going & to call & check in with them if I need.

    Yeah ok, I guess that's what I expected. It must be hard not phoning them to check in etc. did they indicate that they would contact you when consider you for a case (I have read a post on here somewhere that you have an option of being notified when your family is put forward for suggestion vs only being notified when successful).
    My case worker has returned from long service leave and has told me my assessment will commence within next six weeks (but total assessment time will take up to six months), and I have my training starting in a couple of weeks. I have now packed up the baby's room and put everything in the cupboard lol I knew when I set it up that I would probably end up packing it up anyway but hope is such a powerful thing!
    Good luck, I hope you get your special phone call soon!!

    To be honest, now we're approved & on the list, I find it way easier, & really only think about it if someone asks me about it or if hubby & I are talking about long term plans in the future... I think because now we've done everything we can possibly do & the rest from here isn't really up to us.
    It is strange though, to go from fairly regular contact with your case worker, to then kinda nothing...
    We love our case worker, & I am confident enough that he knows us well enough to put us forward for consideration without specifically discussing it with us, but when we chatted to him about this, he said it's not really how he rolls & prefers to have us involved from the beginning of any considerations... I'm happy with this & do think its best for us this way too.
    We had to complete our training, then all our application, and then had a little wait before our assessment begun, so sounds like it was a different order of process to what you've describe will happen with you. Fabulous to hear it's on the move though!
    I'm sure it was fun to set up the baby's room, probably good therapy too!!
    I was the opposite... my sis in law gave us our nephews cot years ago, it was stored under our bed & I felt to me like it was a bad omen so it had to be moved out of the house!
    And because we've been approved for both A & PC, we have no way of knowing wether our child will be 3mths old or 3years old, so until we know, we feel it's better for us to have nothing prepared.
