When you are unable to have biological children of your own, you seem to have no control on the decisions of whether or not you are going to be able or allowed to adopt. I totally understand that the process has to be intrusive and every part of your life needs to be investigated, it’s just when the decision is controlled by bitter ex-wives and controlling bitter family members it just doesn’t seem fair.
However, the interviews were done and our social worker made an appointment to come back and discuss the outcome. Luckily social services are used to situations like ours and knew exactly what questions to ask. After the interviews they explained that they didn’t believe their negative comments and there was no evidence to back any of them up so we were still allowed to carry on with the process, we were so happy.
