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...

...having your children's friends over for snack and some ArtsAndCrafts and feeling like a proper Mum, thinking, this is what it is all about.


  1. Ah! Cute. i can't wait till it's my turn! Messy play is the way forward! x

  2. :) it was great fun and i think i would like to do it more often - eek!

  3. Thanks for sharing your experiences - being an adoptive mum is the best (even if it is the hardest at times too).
    I love reading your blog.
