Week 9

Well 2 weeks has passed and we had our SW visit on Monday. As far as we can tell it went very well.

On the Friday before they visited our SW visited we went through R’s CPR and came up with a list of questions that we wanted to ask. It was very useful our SW coming to see us just before the visit as it was all still fresh in our minds on Monday.

On the Monday, our SW met the 2 SW for lunch before that came here. They arrived just after 1 and stayed until just after 4, so 3 hours in total. They began by talking about R, then asked us for our questions. When talking to us about him, the SW had answered a lot of our questions, so we asked what we could,and a few more that sprang to mind whilst we were talking. The other SW then asked us some questions, which on the whole were not to bad.

We then did the tour of the house, after that we just had another cup of tea and chatted informally. Our SW asked if they had anymore photo’s or a DVD. The SW said that he had some back at his office (a couple of hundred miles away!). They then got into a discussion about lending the FC a DVD recorder that they had to make one for us!!! A good sign I hope.

The LA that R is from have a 2 week policy before giving you an answer so that if we have anymore questions we can ask them and also to give them plenty of time to come to the right decision. I think it’s going to be a very long 2 weeks!

I had an email today off our SW, she had emailed one of the SW’s to say that we had been very positive¬†about the match after they had left, and she emailed back to say that they had both liked us and were going to use the 2 weeks to make sure that they make the right choice for R.

I will update when we have some news, everything that can be crossed is crossed. Hopefully when I come back I can add a count down to matching panel tickerSmile
