Matching & Meeting
The waiting game to be 'matched' and the long awaited introduction stages!
This is probably the hardest part of it all for me. As much as my SW had prepared me, I secretly hoped I'd have my child for a magical Christmas together. (I was approved in the June!).
So this was the waiting game..... the endless thoughts of 'why aren't I getting picked' but I kept held onto knowing I shouldn't rush things.
I'm a great believer in 'it will happen when its right' and then finally the introduction stage makes it all worth it!
