Match ratified. It's FINALLY our time
I've been lurking, occasionally posting, for the three years since I began the approval process.
Today our match with a 2 year old LB has been ratified and introductions start early January.
Lows of the process:
- having match get nearly to panel then fall through* after prepping birth daughter and her doing a show and tell in school (without our knowledge) everyone finding out. * The reason was awful, due to LO's health deteriorating.
- the time it took. We were approved November 2014 and it took a good year to get through approval process meaning it has taken 3 years to get to this point
- it's taken over our life, we've not been on holiday or planned much stuff due to lots of potential links along the way meaning timing was never right
However, here we are, finally! A last Christmas as a family of three and we can now get excited and prepare for his arrival properly. Apart from getting the room ready we've resisted getting anything and still won't go overboard but it will be nice to get a little outfit or two. He is LUSH.
