Its the open evening this week, so Spike and I are starting to think of questions..
(Some of these stem from watching 15000 kids and counting on channel 4)
We are brand new to this, so please excuse our ignorance if you ever read this and think WTF you cant ask that! Or, wow, did you not know that?!
1 – Can you specify you don’t want a baby fish? Or that you only want a girl fish between say 2/3-6? Is it terrible to say you are not a fan of babies??
2 – Can you only adopt a little fish in your area? i.e. What happens if you adopt, you’re walking down the street and you walk past someone who knows the little fish? Do you adopt from all over the UK?
3 – Will working full time and being self employed go against us if we decide to adopt? Does one of you have to give up work?
4 – Will they want to speak to flick and wave?
5 – What happens if your financial past hasn’t always been so rosy?
6 – Can you pull out at any time during the process before matching?
7 – How long does it normally take if you do decide to go ahead?
8 – If you’re not telling people you are going through the process other than really close friends, how do you do references can you use the people close to you?
9 – Does having pets go against you, we’ve 3 dogs huge, medium and tiny?
10 – Do they tell you if you’ve got a fish who has been taken from the birth family or given up by the birth family?
11 – Is it okay for a little fish to always know they’ve been adopted if you dislike the idea of secrets.
12- Is it wrong to say that you want a little fish that looks like it could come from you?
13- Are you suppost to tell people you are looking into adoption, or can you tell people when you know its something you really want to go through?
Will add them as we think of them, Spike has said he won’t go any steps further unless he’s 100% sure, and I feel exactly the same!
