Not much has happened since I last posted. Things have slowed down considerably since our match has fallen through. From being the flavour of the month, we are now someone the social workers don’t want to know about. I guess I’m being a tad paranoid but it certainly feels like we are not wanted as most of the children we have asked about has come to nothing. I hope that it is just the time of year where lots of people are on holiday but who knows. It’s very difficult to stay positive when there is no news. Fortunately, we have been very busy at work to really think about it but occasionally there are one or two quiet moments in which the tragic truth hits us in the eyes: just a short time ago, we were on the verge of having a little person living with us and now there is no foreseeable sign of that happening. I must remember to stay positive though and not to give up.
