Approval panel questions? Matching panel questions
We have approval panel in a little over a week and we just met our LOs foster carers today and are meeting our LOs for the first time 3 days before approval panel (we've already been kind of matched but not gone through panel yet so doing everything a bit backwards as we're going through a bespoke family finding service)! Our assessing social worker has met with LOs social worker and shared info about us - so I'm guessing they wouldn't have let it progress to this stage if they didn't think we had a good chance. I am still really on edge and I just wondered what questions might be asked so we can have a think about how we'd answer them? And also any other tips just on how to get through this agonising wait? We've known we've wanted to adopt our LOs since the very start of stage 1 so if it falls through it's going to be absolutely devastating. I never realised it was possible to fall so much in love with two little people you've never met. Argh!
From people that have gone through both approval and matching panels what is the difference in the questions being asked?
