Sorry for being MIA the past few days but my friend arrived unannounced the other evening with some wonderful news....
Sadly a few years back her & her husband lost 2 children within a year of each other at (both lost around the 6mth mark), this was very difficult for them to deal with as you can imagine & afterwards they had a lot of tests etc carried out. The end result was that the medical profession do not think she is able to carry a child past this mark so they recommended that they stop trying.
Well 2 years ago they applied for adoption & after all the training etc they were required to attend on her 40th birthday last November they went in front of the panel & were approved for adopting.
Last Wednesday was a big day for them as Social Services interviewed them in relation to a baby girl they have & on Friday they received a call to advise them that all workers concerned feel this is a perfect match & they will now have to appear before the panel again on Sept 21st for them to approve the match. All being well this will happen & hopefully by mid October they will be able to bring a beautiful little girl into their home whom they can call their own.
Fingers crossed, saying my prayers & will let you know at a later date what happens...
So thus she has just returned home today & I will now get back to my crafting... naughty old me has had the last few days off socialising.... tut, tut, tut....
Hope to be back soon
