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 to deal with false disclosures by one of your children to professionals and being made to feel like a criminal.  Devastated and frightened doesn't even come close to describing my feelings


  1. Big ((hugs))

    I'm sorry you are having to deal with this and hope its all sorted now or if not very quickly.


  2. Oh Mary. I can't imagine how terrified you must be feeling. I have nothing constructive to say but to offer you big hugs and sending lots of love. xxxxx

  3. I'm really glad to have come across you again Mary. I know that you have been having a hard time of it and hope that you are all ok.

    All the best

    Grumpy Mum (LMSA)

  4. Oh no... how awful.

    I've just found your blog again (it doesn't show up as having new items on Google Reader) and it looks like you aren't posting any more.
