When there is an agreed potential match between you and a child, the Panel will consider the suitability of the match and make a recommendation to the Agency Decision Maker (ADM).  If the ADM approves the match, you will be supported by your social worker with a planned period of introductions with the child before he/she can move to live with you.

This will usually take a few weeks, perhaps longer, depending on the child’s needs.
