How long to leave it before chasing children up on linkmaker

How long do folk leave it before sending messages on linkmaker to family finders for chasing up children? It is very disheartening to wait two-three weeks after sending your PAR only to get a no! I know they are busy but it is frustrating!

It all depends on the attitude of the Family Finders and how many potential matches. When we were Family finding, often we would never get a response. I would usually give it a couple of weeks to be processed and find its way into the pile of possible matches coming for other sources. It’s worth making this sort of post in the Linkmaker Q&A which would probably get responses from current Linkmaker users with more up to date experiences.

When we were looking for a child, we used to give it a week before chasing it up with the family finder. In my view, it just shows that you are really interested in the child.
