I've been wondering when and how to break this news, but I really think the time has come when evading and obfuscating will soon turn in to outright lying if I don't come clean soon, so I have decided to tell you first, loyal blog followers!
(Well, nearly first - a few key people are already in the know . . . )
At a recent court date, the judge decided to implement the local authority's latest care plan for OB, namely that he be adopted and I should be the one to adopt him.
It's not a done deal yet. I've had to submit an application to become an adoptive parent and I'll need to go through the same assessment and approval process as anybody else, which will probably take quite a few months, but as of now, the local authority are not looking to match OB with anyone else.
So, we're going to be a family! Watch out world!
