Fate? Maybe. Coincidence? I think not.

I have just watched the Carte Blanche story about the abused and abandoned children that end up in our welfare system.  What a wake up call.  There are so many children out there in need of homes and loving parents.

I have contacted the welfare and I am hoping to have had some sort of response by tomorrow morning.  For the first time in six years I can see light at the end of this tunnel.

Anyone (Preferrably South African) who has adopted recently and has contacts or helpful advice, please leave a comment with your contact details or blog name so that we can get in touch. 

Am I giving up on having my own children?  Of course not.  Am I going to delay having a family for another year in favour of treatments that may or may not work?  Definitely not.  I am ready for parenthood.  Bring it on.

    I know that Natalie from Almost There just recently adopted her little girl (http://thehenmans.blogspot.com). Leave a comment on her blog and I’m sure she’ll contact you!

    Good luck Mands! I’m praying for the BEST outcome for you!

    Hi Mands, this is such an exciting post to read, I feel over the moon for you. When I lived in SA I did some work with orphans (HIV & otherwise) thru the St. Frances Care Centre in Boksburg and there were 30 children there alone. What an exciting time for you, I wish you all the luck in the world xxx

    I’m looking forward to following you every step of the way.
