My DS joined our family 13 years ago. It took about 4 years. When we wondered if we would be finally matched we decided to book a holiday abroad as we had previously booked UK holidays and twice been contacted whilst being away. We enjoyed our last holiday abroad and two months later were contacted about our son. We know it was the right decision and worth the wait.

We have started our adoption journey early this year but finds that social worker is quite slow in moving things along and I understand it’s because of staffing issues and Covid backlog. We are working with our local authority. Is there a difference if you go to an agency instead? Do they tend to be quicker?

And conversely - easy to place does not mean easy to parent! And, yes, as mum to three of those easy to place babies .. who all turned out to be rather complex .. I can attest to that.
