Report content

Hi We are going to panel finally next week after a lot of hurdles! Just wondering what questions were people asked?

Good luck. I think the questions will be tailored to you specifically but I was asked about 1) how I had reflected on the process so far 2) something about the childcare experience I gained in a local school 3) what I might find hard when I get a child. If you have any 'weak' areas in your PAR then be prepared to have responses around any questions. As a single adopter I really bigged up my support network. Exciting times for you x

We were asked what we have learnt during the process, how our views/thoughts may have changed, how we each feel about becoming stay at home parent or continuing to work. Absolutely they will ask questions on your “weak” points (we were prepared for this) so we tackled them head on when they asked their leading questions. We knew what they were getting at so we acknowledged it and turned it towards our strengths. I felt like they just needed to have identified potential areas of difficulty and get our reassurance that we are aware of it and how we would deal with it. It seemed to be what they needed and we were unanimously approved so we were very happy about this.


I’m being vague I know but like west gold says you should hopefully be aware of any areas of likely questioning from your SW.


Wishing you good luck. I’m sure you will be posting next week that you too have been approved! X

Hi, it’s pretty much the same as above as the first couple of question are pretty generic. At my panel they asked about 8 questions but it’s tailored to your PAR. So if you have pets they will ask about them and if you have elderly parents etc...


It’s hard but try not to rehearse anything, you don’t want to sound scripted, and as I was told not to waffle on.


But honestly they are not there to catch you out. And remember you wouldn’t be getting this far if you didn’t have a good chance of getting approved.


Good luck for next week x
