I just wondered if you could give us a little update on your journey. I know you were doing respite care, and I thought you were on a waiting list for ivf? Maybe I'm remembering wrong. Anyway, I think about it from time to time, and just wanted you to know i'm thinking of you.

Aw Jeanne!!

Thank you for thinking of me
 


Neil and I have been respite foster carers to a young man since November 2006. He comes to us every other weekend now, he's an awesome young man and we love him to bits!

The placement with us will become permanent next year when he moves into adult services, because we're in the process of being approved to be his adult carers. When this happens I'll give up my regular job (or cut the hours right down), and be his full time carer.

He'll carry on going to school until he's 19 and then he'll most probably do a 2 year college course (specially for adults who have learning disabilities), and then I'd like to hope he'd do some kind of supported employment or voluntary work.

In terms of IVF, it's imminent. I regularly cr@p myself, and my stomach is constantly in knots. The treatment has to work because I have a colleague that I work with very closely, and she's about 9 weeks PG, and I think watching her beautiful bump grow will be too painful a constant reminder.

Anyway, enough of me! How are YOU!!!!?? Joshua and Matthew are growing up SO fast!!!

Thank you Sarah
 
It's comforting to know people are rooting for me!

I think our infertility has become a bit infamous!

So will this young man live with you once he turns 18? I think that's wonderful for all 3 of you that you have found each other.

Ooh... I'm getting excited for your IVF. Have you had it ever before? How much longer are we looking at? Maybe we can head over to the dd boards together.
