I found it compulsive viewing, so thought I'd just mention it's on 4 at 9.

I have to say I thought it was awful that the foster carers refered to themselves as mummy and daddy!

me too, but at least those three lovely children have got forever homes

Yeah it's particularly relevant to us as we're hoping for approval to 2 1/2 so the same age as Tommy!

I know FM, it got awkward, but I can understand it must have been hard for them. And they only had the very best of intentions. Having him from 3 days old to then, must have been so hard to let go and their adopted daughter looked heartbroken! He was a lovely lad.
I found it difficult hearing the social worker telling Lauren she *would* find her a forever home, when - at the time - there was almost zero chance of adoption. But how marvellous it turned out. They were a lovely pair of kids.

I do understand it must be difficult but we they knew he was going to be adopted they should have begun getting him ready for that. And feeding him like a baby and letting them calling him mum and dad was not the right thing to do. Remember foster care is a paid job. Yes it takes a lot and its a wonderful thing to do but at the end of the day they are supposed to get him ready for his new family.
The lady also seemed very frail in my opinion.
I was delighted that Lauren got her family as we weren't allowed to consider older siblings so part of the issue her are social workers themselves.

They didn't seem very robust did they? Left me thinking it must be the last time they have a little one like that. The woman seems to do most of the physical caring and she really struggled on stairs and general mobility.
