- Q: How do you eat an elephant?
- A: One bite at a time.
We had another interview with our adoption social worker yesterday. She is so positive and reassuring, and we really do need that at the moment since we are struggling with the huge, gigantic amount of writing up we have to do. Everything from our life history to our understanding of child development, from our finances to our attitudes to gender roles, from what we argue about to how we show affection to each other, all has to be written up. Mammoth task. Aaargh. Even the dog has a three page questionnaire (training, role in household, toilet habits, worming, etc). We also have to do an “eco map” showing details of our support networks (from friends and family to professional organizations such as doctor, adoption agency) and what support/help we could get from each. It does all seem terribly daunting, but we are plodding along slowly, one bite of the elephant at a time.
