Mum's still in hospital, but she is out of danger. Its going to be a few weeks before she's home so the next update I will give is her coming home from the hospital I hope unless something dramatic happens.

Onto the Adoption route ......

Well I don't think all is well on this front. I got a call and the head of the department stated she didn't want to talk about it over the phone. Not a good start. Then a few days later I received a copy of the report from the counsellor. I was devastated to say the least. I was gob smacked. Daz doesn't think its as bad as I think it is but I have a feeling this may be the end of the road for us adopting. I have to wait to see the agency, has to be before the 8th of January as the head is away after that date for 4 weeks. Mind you she has had the report since the 4th of November but only called me on about the 18th of December. Love Government Departments ............. NOT

So my next thoughts turned back to IVF. The next cycle could be March but that is also when Daz goes in for his heart operation.

Christmas day I also made 'the offer' to the pregnant niece in-law. She is thinking about it, although she said she would do it for free, but I know once she speaks with her money hungry mother it will probably change. I'm really happy to pay anything. Then we also have to figure out how we can make it official that we are the parents if we went ahead.

I'm glad your mother is doing better. I am sorry you are getting mostly bad news. It is a real downer about the adoption. :( I pray that something goes your way soon.

*big hugs*

I'm sorry you're having a hard time. Is the Permanent Care program an option for you?

So glad to see your Mom's out of danger! I hope she's home soon.

I'm sorry for all the bad turns you've been handed. Especially around the holidays. Boo!

Maybe the niece-in-law won't be corrupted too horribly and that will be the open door for you.
