Still waiting

6th September 2010

Today has been a happy day for me.  Got to chat with an adult adoptee that I got to know online sometime ago on Y!A and we have connected on Facebook as well.  I felt a bit nervous before talking to her as I am shy but glad I made the call.  Rick had a chat with her as well so between us we were on the phone for ages.

It looks like our move could happen quite quickly after all.  Due to our housing association taking so long to do the rent reference we were third or fourth on the waiting list for the areas we wanted.  Today we got a call to let us know we will likely be offered a place tomorrow or in the next couple of weeks.  It depends on a lady who is ahead of us on the waiting list.  She is looking at a house tomorrow but if she doesn’t want it then we will be offered the house.  Otherwise we will be offered another house that is being done up at the moment.  Tomorrow afternoon we should know what’s going on.


About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
