Well last night we went to an information evening and it was brilliant! Also after wanting another ‘baby’ we came out totally changing our minds. After speaking to two social workers separately, they BOTH suggested if we wanted a ‘playmate’ for our 4 year old, a tiny baby wasn’t for us. And....as a child care practitioner for 20 years I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS! But had blinkers on as per usual. And....then to top it off, husband said that’s what he thought! Ha (why didn’t he say before) 😂.
Of course, my little boy has been saying “mummy I want a brother to play with” not thinking for one minute he’s imagining a fully grown play mate! So.....we are planning on a toddler so as I’m an expert with toddlers for 20 years it makes sense. Also we left the meeting last night with a smile on our faces and found out we could have a child in as little as 7 months if everything such as medicals and training happen promptly. AMAZING!!! After soooo much heartache I am now extremely happy and can’t wait to see what the future brings xxx💕xxx
