Miranda and Marie-Louise were colleagues but it was only days before Miranda left to go on adoption leave that they found out that they were both adopting. “It’s that kind of process that you don’t massively talk about because you never know when it’s going to happen, or how, and so you keep it to yourself. It’s not like when you have your birth child and everyone can see you getting bigger and bigger. I remember telling my colleagues two weeks before I left”.
