Some of you may have seen my earlier posts when i talked about my brother and his partner trying to adopt.
Well, and i don't want to say this too loudly, it looks like they may have succeded!!
They had a succesful final interview for a pair of brothers aged 4 and 8 (or 5 and 8, there may have been a recent birthday) and are now working their way through the beauracracy and paperwork of adopting kids from another county council. Fingers crossed, the boys should be having there fist long stay (as opposed to just day visits) in October and will be movig in before Christmas.
I would love to get or make the boys some sort of gift to say welcome to the family but i have no diea what. My experience with childeren is virtually non-existant and i just don't know what sort of thing a 5 year old and an 8 or 9 year old would like. All i know about them is that they both like the colour red and are mad football (soccer) fans, their names, that they have been in care with one foster mum for 4 years and have red hair. what do young boys like these days?
What can i get for/ make them that says 'welcome to the family, i hope you are happy with us, but dont expect treats and gifts all the time!'
