Had the second prep group and it went really well. It was all about loss and attachment and was very emotional for all. I got quite teary as did a lot of people. It seems so strange how you can find out so much about a room full of people in such a short amount of time. The prep groups are really good and makes you reflect on things that you need to do before you go any further in adoption.
Had a bit more homework so we’ve been working on that. Also had a bunch of forms sent to us to complete such as CRB checks, doctor forms, a more detailed application for adoption etc.etc. I can’t tell you how many times I completed my address list but it seemed like loads and loads.
Apart from that, not much else has been happening. Just taking it slowly really and remembering to have time away from thinking/doing/writing about adoption. It’s important to remember to take some time away from the whole thing as it can really play on your mind. So that’s my tip for today. Have fun!
