How and when does your child/children wake you in the morning
Our LO is woken by our alarm and is normally grumpy about it. Sleeps on air bed next to our bed.
Why adoption?
birth children did not work, mostly Mum’s age
From start of assessment to bringing your child home how long did the process take?
Assessment started half a year after first enquiry and then it took just over 1.5 years
How could it be improved?
Hope new process is better, assessment to approval was less than a year and then we were looking for the “right” child. At the moment key improvement seems to be availability of children, judges need to make permanence decisions.
What has been the biggest surprise?
We found out loads of things about us.
After half a year with us it feels like we’ve always had our LO.
How was the assessment process?
Good, we felt it was sensible, appropriate and professional.
What’s your favourite thing to do together?
Eat
What makes you and your family laugh?
LO’s enthusiasm
The best thing about being a parent?
How happy our LO is
The hardest thing about being a parent?
When LO is not happy and we can’t understand why and repetition.
The piece of wisdom you would pass on to a child?
Slow down
What time do you go to bed?
By midnight
