Hoping to adopt - I have had brain damage
I'm hoping to adopt, I have an information evening in March, and hope to start assessment after my next (and hopefully final operation) in May where I am having a titanium plate fitted to my skull (I have a hole where they had to remove 2 sections of skull).
My speech, balance, general mobility issues are what I am now living with, but I am now registered disabled and have an accessibility car (I can't find the words to explain how it feels to have my freedom back , I had to be a year fit free before the DVLA gave me my license back).
I have had a few lengthy chats with SW already, and I explained that due to my balance, I wouldn't be able to carry a baby up the stairs, so with much thought, we'd like to be considered for adopting a 4-8 year old boy or girl.
But onwards and upwards, and am doing my best to look forward, I know my limits and where I have to set my own boundaries.
I have plenty of love to give, and I'm hoping there is a little one out there waiting to find me :-)
Any tips/words or encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
