First of all I'm a regular member but I'm posting under a different identity due to the sensitive nature of the content. I know a few people might know who I am through reading this so can I ask you to try to refrain from any personal references. Thank you.
My wife and I have been trying for our own children since we got married 8 years ago but unfortunately it didn't work out and after two failed IVF attempts we decided to pursue adoption. We always new this would be the path we'd take as it was something we discussed when we first got together.
This past year we've been through all the training and working with social workers to compile a profile and a couple of months ago we were approved to adopt two siblings.
A few weeks ago we were approached by a SW with two very young children that they wanted us to see. We instantly fell for them and a few days ago we got the news that on my birthday I will be meeting my new son and daughter for the first time. I can't wait and I'm sooooo happy.
So any advice for a new dad? An adopters perspective would be even better!
One more thing, anyone who thinks they are happier than me at the moment are wrong!
