we are looking to adopt. we got in touch with the Council, where we live and we have been told that they will not be taking further our request due to not having experience with children. They require as part of the process to sit through a brief, and give you the opportunity to ask questions within the time limit. we couldn't find on their website that if you do not have experience with children this will be automatic rejection.
We find this, looking for experience, very hard, even if I made inquiries and some of the nurseries have been providing this, some of them, reason being that during this there isn't any help from the Council in the sense that if we have questions, we cannot go to them; or they are not able to say for how long you have to do this, when you suppose to start.
our understanding was and is that they will help you and guide you through all of this, sort of holding your hand in case you need some help. we really find this hard, to get experience to approach people and tell them we are thinking to adopt, we need to do this however the agency might be rejecting us again. I know there isn't any guarantee in getting approved, however we expected to have some help or to start the process of getting experience in the same time as first stage.
do you know how long before we approach them again, we need? do you have any examples, where people started to gain experience and they have been told no by the agency?
We really don't want to waste anyone's time, or to have our harts broken by another rejection.
