Had a phone call from our social worker today to provide a date for meeting the Medical Adviser from the Local Authority that we are adopting the children through; it's a week on Monday. We will also be getting the judge's summing up paperwork today and the minutes of the meeting on 22nd February where we discussed the viability of the match.
I also asked that the 'Life Appreciation Day' meeting be requested. This is a meeting where the foster carer, health visitor, social worker and other professionals gather together to go through in chronological order the history of the children and what happened to them. A social worker will take minutes and this document will help to form information that can be shared with the children in later life. This information meeting usually happens for older children so we are not sure if we will get one, so we can but ask!
We have the meeting with the foster carer and nursery school teacher on Friday, times still yet to be agreed. It's on the same day as a LAC (Looked After Child) review so everyone will be at the Local Authority offices anyway.
Our friends G & F go to matching panel on Wednesday for a little boy, so we are keeping our fingers firmly crossed for them. They will make wonderful parents and their little boy sounds just lovely; can't wait to meet him!
