Team ESLT: 3 Years On

On one hand, it seems like yesterday and on the other hand, it seems like a lifetime ago, Junior and Mini ESLT (now 8 and nearly 5) joined the team. They have grown and developed into two beautiful, strong-willed, independent and truly loving little girls who complete our family and keep us laughing and learning every single day. Attachments are fully formed and we simply cannot remember life before them…

Team ESLT: 2 Years On

We can’t believe that today marks two whole years since Junior and Mini ESLT joined our team and made it complete. Looking back to pre-adoption and the adoption journey, it feels like a million years ago. It really does feel like the girls have always been with us. Gone are the socially awkward and heavily delayed 5-year-old and the mute 23-month-old. They have been replaced with a 7-year-old who is…

Team ESLT: 1 Year On

Today marks a year to the day since Junior and Mini ESLT joined the team. A whole 366 days (2020 is a leap year don’t forget) since our lives were changed forever. A lot has happened in the past 12 months, yet the day they moved in feels like yesterday. Our journey was a pretty straight forward one. We decided to adopt, we went through the two stages of the…

The New ESLT Team Members and Their Probationary Period

As with all new members of any team, a probationary period is essential. Both parties need to ensure that the position is the right fit for them. Adoption is no different. We welcomed our new team members (Junior ESLT and Mini ESLT) back in June 2019. It was an initial shock to the system for all of us. Doubling the team in one day was something we had always dreamed…

Team ESLT – Our New Adventure Begins

A little life update and one we have been trying to write for the past week but to no avail. Time is no longer our own you see. Our time belongs to two beautiful little munchkins…..and we wouldn’t have it any other way. I sit here writing this as junior ESLT creates masterpieces (sausages and snakes I am informed) out of PlayDoh and Mini ESLT snoozes away (dreaming of Peppa…

Team ESLT – Position Filled!

What a year! On the 1st of May last year we met with our social worker for the first time to discuss the possibility of adopting a child. Who would have thought things would be as wonderful as they are today back then. But then we guess that proves the age-old saying ‘things get worse before they get better’. Because yesterday was one of the best days of our lives….

The Winding Road To Adoption. The Next Steps.

Remember back in June (wow where has that 6 months gone?) when we broadcasted to the world via the power of the internet that we were starting on the road to adoption? A number of people since then have asked us questions about the process and how’s it going. Well, we have an update! Since mid-April, we have had every aspect of our life put under a microscope. We have…

The Start of Our Road To Adoption

We recently let the world know that we are in the process of adopting a child. Crazy, scary yet totally exciting times. We asked the Twitterverse if they would like to join us on our adoption journey and astoundingly 89% of people who voted in our poll said they would. Now, we promise not to become baby bores and our blog will, of course, continue to be travel focussed, but…
