Adoption and GameOn...

So, had a phone "interview" from Action for Children today.

Liz and I are looking into adoption as an option as we are having no luck with "other methods" of parenting. (Yes,ive heard it all beofre chaps, mainly from Liz.. )

Now, it was all going well until it came to the point about what we do in our spare time...

Until you say out loud to someone who may or may not allow you to adopt children what GameOn is, in your head it sounds fine.. However...

"Well, about every few months I meet people I really dont know in a rented room at a race course to play games, oh and the age range is from around 9 to about 50..."

The phone went very quiet at that point... lol.

Re: Adoption and GameOn...

Adoption and fostering agencies are soooooo strict on anything like that, believe me I know. If my own brother wanted to come stay with me and Wedge the pair of us would have to go through rigerous police checks which last weeks for a weekend visit.
So something like a Lan would be a nightmare as they would have to police check EVERYBODY that went, its probably worth just not mentioning it.

It doesnt just happen with you prospective parents either, as a child bought up in care I couldnt even wipe my own ass without social services on the phone asking a million questions about it.
