A new friend.....
A friend introduces me to a new friend today. She lives just down the road, has previously adopted 3 boys from Suffolk Adoption Services and is well known to the Adoption team. I instantly warm to her over a bottle of Chenin Blanc in the local pub and we talk for hours about the reality of adoption. She is honest and funny and full of incredibly useful experience and information. We talk openly about parenting adoptive children and how different methods have helped her and her 3 boys. We cover backward facing prams, skin on skin contact, attachment, bonding and challenging behaviour. We make plans to meet up again soon and I am ever grateful for my friend for thinking of me. When I mention her to Miss Delia in our next session, her eyes light up. She knows exactly who I am talking about and is delighted to hear we have been in contact. Massive brownie points to my friend for introducing her to me!
- mummy in the baking
- This blog is about me and my voyage to becoming a mummy. Ironically called “mummy in the baking” as together with my passion and obsession for all things cake related, I will never be able to have my own "bun in the oven." Years of fertility treatment have taken their toll and I now find myself on a new..eek, i hate this word...journey! The crazy train to adoption. I hope you will join me while I bake my way to becoming a mummy. I want this blog to be a source of information as well as a comforter. I hope it will inspire and help anyone who is considering adoption or who has in fact already bought their ticket for this..here I go again...journey. Cake makes me happy and I hope you will enjoy sharing my love of it. I want it to help lift your spirits and hearts through what can only be described as 'the trials and tribulations of the adoption process.' Along with my desire to be a family, I love my dogs, have an unhealthy love of sausages and chenin blanc, adore my land rover uber-nerd of a husband and continiously dream of balmy summer evenings. Baking in progress…..
