single adopter versus two parents
Firstly, I'm posting this on behalf of a friend of mine who is a prospective adopter like me, but who isn't a member here and doesn't like computers, and asked me to do this for her, so that I can print out responses for her.
She is a single adopter and has been 'shortlisted' for a child along with one other family, who she has been told is a couple. She is going to be visited by the child's sw in three weeks, as is the other family, and then they'll decide who to go for.
My friend feels that there is a bit of resistance towards her because she is on her own and feels that she will ultimately lose out to the couple. I've tried to reassure her that they will look at both applications in the round. Single adopters, I'd welcome your thoughts about whether you've been in a similar situation and any advice for my friend.
