Hi all how we doing? Any closer axle?
We had court today but birth mum contested so we are looking at a few more weeks before it is official.

Hey still waiting. We haven't heard from our social worker to book our appointment for our update. They have placed 10 babies so far this year so hoping we get the call soon.

That is so frustrating that the mom contested. What happens if she contests again?

Mum was given 2 days to submit a statement of why she felt she had made enough changes to look after her etc but hasn't done it. Hopefully this means the order will be granted on the next court date.

I hope you get your match soon.

My fingers are crossed for you!! Hoping everything goes your way!!

I'm so frustrated with our adoption agency. We still haven't heard from them about our update, and I'm stubborn so I'm not calling them. I feel like we have paid them a lot of money and they should have some kind of tracker. But on a positive note my husband bought us a trip to Vegas for our 5th year anniversary. Super excited! I'm making him a sign with our last name and date of our wedding date. Hopefully hes as excited as I am lol.

So the agency finally contacted me today. And now because they took so long to contact us, our schedule won't work with my husband work and our holidays. So I think we will be able to do our update either end of June or in August. I'm hoping that the update goes good I'm having a little anxious. This process has been brutal.

Oh AXl, How disappointing for you.

Our case did not go as expected. We had a new judge and she felt there was something missing. Mum turned up with someone she wanted to present as a potential guardian and said she wants to make another statement. Apparently she had submitted a statement when we were told otherwise by the courts.
The judge deferred the case until July but legal are apparently trying to move it forward.
I went a little crazy and started ranting at the SW when she told me. I was in tears and just couldn't hold back. She tried her best to reassure me but I just couldn't believe it. JULY!! What is the point in all this? She said the plan is still for DD to be with us so I cannot understand the logic of delaying it so much. I have to go back to work in July!

Wow that sucks missk1989. I really hope it goes your way. I hope the judge looks at whats best for the child, and moving the child from your home isn't fair to the child.

So we have our apt booked for end of June then she lets me know that we need to study our homestudy not sure why. If I would have known we needed to jump through some hoops and be treated this way I would never have went down this road first.

Also I'm not to happy with some of the sw comments in the homestudy report. Not sure how that's going to go.

Hi all

I know it's been quiet on here on late as life has taken over, but I wanted to share my news that we have been matched with a little girl. All going well, we should be proceeding to panel on 17th July, with intros starting on the 24th. After what feels like a journey that's taken a long time it now seems all very quick which is great!

Hope all is well with everyone else!
