    Big news

    After a busy few months and not having a lot of time to spend on larger projects outside of the day job it is now going to get even busier ... but I am happy with that.

    Some folk will have already seen on my FaceBook status that today was a big day. My wife and I have been to an adoption panel to be matched with a lovely little 2 1/2 year old girl. There is still a bit of a hoop to go through with the official 'Decision Maker' going through it and signing it off, so we are not home and dry yet, but we are now safe enough to let people know. It also means that she will be with us in August.

    As it is an adoption we will not be posting lots of pics online but will find some way to share with friends.

    I do have to give a big thanks to @Dos_Box, @ZeroHour and @russdev for their friendly, family advice and a bigger thanks to @garethedmondson.

    This has been 3 years to get here and these folks have kept me sane at times ... well ... as sane as I ever will be ;-)

    @GrumbleDook:

    It will be a very happy time for you and your wife and I think that I can speak for most if not all the edugeeker's that we will be the happiest anties and uncles on the planet.

    I know from friends of mine how difficult and long drawnout the process is and with this in mind I wish you and your wife all the best for the coming events ahead

    Good luck my friend to both of you

    A couple we know have been through the process and are now a very happy family with an absolute delight of a little chap they adopted. He is a lucky little fellow as they too bring something special to being parents. The very best to you both.
