Currently, we are matched with a young boy, who we will fondly refer to as Little Chick. It will be several weeks before introductions can officially begin, during which time I need to keep myself busy, to keep myself sane. After saying “I must write a blog so our friends and family ‘get it’ and so we can help other prospective adopters” for far too long, I am finally committing pen to paper, so to speak.
I apologise that there will be a flurry of posts in the first few weeks as I do all I can to, erm, not think about adoption. I also apologise that after that I may be so loved up and cocooned that I forget all about this blog. Similarly, I apologise that some of these posts reflect on events and experiences that probably should have been recorded immediately and not reported later with bias and the benefit of hindsight. Look, I’ll just say sorry now and then I’m pretty much covered.
Once Little Chick is placed with us, I will blog about this: the highs, the lows, and everything in between. Although I will record my thoughts at the time, I may not always post them in real time, for confidentiality reasons. Thank you for reading this far and I hope that someone finds some benefit from something I write.
