    All the best for your panel day Mave! It's very exciting to finally reach the end of the process! I hope it goes well 😊
    We have been 'waiting' for the call about a month or so now so it's always in the back of my mind. You have to try and get on with life so it doesn't drive you crazy! We have even booked a holiday, but will gladly cancel all plans if we get the call πŸ˜ƒ

    We really are excited, thankyou everyone!!
    It's so nice to know we have reached the end of the application process, we've gotten so much out of it & learnt so much along the way, but will be really happy to 'tick' that last box

    How did you find the panel Hopefulstar? I feel like the 10min chat may be a big anticlimax to end the application process!
    & although I know I'll feel just like you, as in it will always be in the back of your mind... I'm looking forward to the comfort of knowing it's all out of our hands & control from here on, & getting on with our lives as you say.
    I think booking the holiday is a great idea, gives you something else to focus on & look forward too.. we've been thinking of doing the same & ive been reluctant to make the decision about it. I turn the big 4 0 early next year & have thought for a long time that I wanted to mark the occasion with an overseas trip... I think once panel is done we'll do exactly that, start planning the trip, knowing we'll be completely happy to forgo our dough & cancel those plans at anytime if 'the call' comes through!!

    Hi Mave,

    I won't lie...panel day was nerve wracking! Our time was set for the afternoon so we went out for brunch to pass the time and get in the right head space. Waiting to go in was the most nerve wracking as we were not sure what to expect. It may be a bit different for everyone else but we had 6 people sitting across from us (apparently that was more than usual) but they were amazing at making us feel at ease. I was still pretty nervous as I don't like being the centre of attention. But if there's one thing this whole process has taught me it's that you need to put yourself out there and be confident and true to yourself 😊They asked us a few questions then it was all over in about 15-20 minutes! Our social worker called us about half an hour later to deliver the good news πŸ˜ƒ

    In terms of planning a holiday, yes I definitely think you should do it!! It's great to have something to look forward to so you don't spend the time waiting for the phone call. I spoke to our social worker about it and she said that it's absolutely fine.

    Good luck and I look forward to hearing how you go!
