Advice from people that have adopted siblings with disabilities
We're a little over a week away from approval panel and have a date for matching panel already lined up and would be interested to hear from people that have successfully adopted siblings (both with SEN - global delay/communication difficulties/possible ASD), or any experience adopting a child with a high chance of having a life limiting genetic condition?
I get that questions will be about showing we can meet the children's needs. Is there anything we should do to prepare for panel questions...the wait is just excruciating so I'm trying to fill it by doing adoption related things! Are the questions likely to be in relation to our vulnerabilites. We have loads of information about the children now having just met the children's FCs (a lot of the stuff we'd been given to read about them was out of date and it was great to see their current home environment).
Also has anybody made a welcome DVD for their LOs and if so, how did you grab their attention? Any ideas from anybody that has had experience of this would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers in advance,
