    My mate is bringing her new adopted son home today......

    I am sooo excited for her.

    It's like she's been expecting all this time, waiting for her new bundle of joy.

    I can't wait to meet him.

    We've got to hold back though - as we don't want to frighten the poor child with lots of cooing mums - he's 20 months so will probably be bewildered and confused at first.

    Has anyone else been in this situation? What was it like?

    Aahh cheers munnski - it is a very special time. She's such a lovely person too - I couldn't be more pleased for her and her husband.

    I saw a photo of them all together and the little fellow really fits in with the family, and looked like he had been born to them.

    It's really nice having good news for a change

    It is, it's lovely. I am sure they will be very proud mummys & daddys just now. Warms your heart to know that kids can still find nice familes when they are put up for adoption, it is a lovely thing to do and I hope they have many many years of happiness

    Yes - the adoption process is very long, and not so long ago my mate was questioning whether she could continue with the assessments. But now, she's already thinking that she is going to go for another. :-D

    Call him OJ

    Yes it must be hard for some of the biological family but I don't know all the details of the family background. I know that the boy had suffered from neglect for the first 10 months of his life. But he is now safe, he has made good progress under his foster carers and is now going to a loving family who will love and protect him.

    I couldn't imagine giving up a child, it would tear me apart.

    thats really nice x

    is he from africa?
    is your friend called maddona?
    lol only kidding

    I am interested in this as UK adoption so difficult ( my friends been trying to adopt for ages) . Is he from UK or overseas?

    Oh that’s lovely news! I'd love to adopt, and even thought about doing it rather then having children of my own. I work in a school in a very deprived area and know how important it is for children to have loving homes over living with biological parents.

    It is difficult but oh so worth it when you have your child to love and cherish

    Aww how exciting for her........hope all goes well hun and that he settles in quickly xx

    my friend and her husband adopted a little girl a few years back and she is 5 now and starting school this year and at easter there they got their little boy who is 2 and they seem to really gelled with each other it is a long process but well worth it, good luck to your friend and her family and it takes alot to stick with and go through the adoption process mentally and emotionally so i take my hat off to all these people that do it as it is hard but worth it so good luck to all of them

    OOh my

    the boy is so gorgeous. I stayed back because of the many mums around the boy, but he is so very confident that he is going to be just fine.

    :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

    Lovely news, my friend adopted a similar age girl almost two years ago and everything is great!
