What they DON'T tell you on prep groups!
This is a blog of the things we have learned as a new adoptive Mum and Dad to three children under the age of five. For 'Mum' you can read 'Dad' and 'parent'. It is also a record of some of the things no-one told us on the prep groups. Some of it is what children get up to in general and some of it is adoption-specific. Regardless, it should be an interesting read for any parent, prospective and adoptive. Feel free to add your comments, which I shall publish.

Being an adoptive Mum is...
...not being able to celebrate your children's birthdays online with your friends, e.g. "my little girl is three today and we have made it her best birthday ever, with fabulous presents and a wonderful cake made by Nanny :) ", because that gives away their date of birth and makes them potentially traceable by the birth family
