    Hello to everyone,

    I just want to say a big thank you to all for your replies to my question about the average age of couples. I was so surprised and appreciative to see so many responses. I relayed the info to my husband and we feel better knowing we sort of sit in the middle of the age range.

    Way to go gusandmeg! I'm so glad you had such a positive experience and best wishes for your individual interviews. It really seems like things are going smoothly with an August panel penciled in.

    Take care all and chat again soon.

    P.S. Still thinking of you CJ123. Fingers crossed!

    Hello

    We have a baby boy!!!!!

    The birth mother had chosen us over the weekend and we found out on Monday (after I didn't sleep all weekend). He is 7 months old and has been with an amazing foster family for the last couple of months. We saw his photos yesterday and he is adorable. Our transition starts on Monday so we will get to meet him then, can't wait.
    Just want to share our news!

    Thanks Bubbles. It's all a bit surreal. I have read plenty of 'announcement messages' like this before but never thought I'd be the one writing one myself. Never say never

    Great news bubbles, it feels good when things are moving along
    We really enjoyed the training sessions, not only were they
    informative and well delivered but it was so lovely
    to meet other people going through the same process.
    Enjoy
    Sam

    Thanks Sam,

    We actually received an invitation with such short notice because other couples were unable to make it, therefore opening a spot for us. I had called the office to let them know that we could attend with as little as a days notice and to our surprise we received a call to attend. You did mention in an earlier post that there is a fine line between harassing and staying on their radar. I know exactly what you mean and I guess it worked in our favour. I'm glad you found the training session informative and a great way to meet other couples who have shared similar experiences. We look forward to all that and are so pleased that the process is going so smoothly.

    Take care and goodnight,

    Bubbles
