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...
...thinking the foster carers were a complete cheapskate and meanie by not replacing the batteries in ANY of their toys. Then, within moments of replacing them ALL, realising EXACTLY why they were never replaced and wishing you had bought ear plugs instead!
