adoption & the army

Yes, I think so person on other thread kept refering to it as SAFFA, but on googling it myself SSAFA is what I came up with but was on my way out so did not have time to correct it. Thanks Polly Pocket

sleeping through

Each babies are individuals and they will all do it in there own times. Tend to find it is when they are able to take larger amounts and you can get them into more of a day routine, and of course that they are more awake during the day, therefore tierder at night.

IVF Funding

We had 1 cycle on the NHS, then self funded. We moved, only a couple of miles up the road but came under a new health authority. Their policy was to fund everyone once, so although we had already had one funded by the NHS that move got us another one. We were all for going again on our own and it was only because we registered with our GP and he put us forward. It really is rubbish, this postcode lottery.

New Preemie Mum

I work on a neonatal unit, we always tell our parents to treat their babies as normal babies because if they wernt ready to go home we would not be letting them go. We encourage parents to take their babies out for walks whilst they are still on the unit, that way when they go home they are not frightened to take their babies out, or to have visiters round.

We have dogs, not staffs. We have had to fill in doggy questionaires on them both, but it has not been a problem.

work and adoption

I shall be taking some time off work, but as we want to adopt school age children I am not going to take the full year, but will play it by ear to and will see what suits our children. I shall only be working part time and my husband will work his shifts around my work so that one of us will always be around for our children.
