This afternoon has been a whirlwind! The medical and background info on our future child arrived and I've been like a headless chicken ever since!!! Everything looks really good and the child looks to be healthy, but underweight for age/size :-) I am desperate to go over there and feed the child up!!
I've spoken to our LA Team Leader and impressed on her the urgency of getting the UK process and documentation started. She is going to try to arrange to meet with us, our Social Worker next week. She is also going to check into whether or not me and Mr Messy have to meet the Agency Medical Advisor in person, or if he can read through the information and give his opinion that way. Once that meeting is done then the LA Team Leader can get in touch with the DCSF and indicate that the LA approves of the proposed match. Then the DCSF will send us a Permission to Travel letter and me and Baby Sis will be on the next plane possible :-)
I've already asked two medical friends to look at the Medical and both say the health looks good - thank you so much to both of you, you know who you are :-) I'm going to see our own GP in the morning and ask his opinion too.
Now all I want to do is get on a plane and go and see, hug and cuddle our new child :-)
