An Adoption Update...

Well we are DONE!!

Well, for right now anyways.

We have done all we have to do before being waitlisted.

On Christmas Eve I checked the mailbox, even though I was relatively certain that mail wasn't delivered on Christmas Eve. Apparently I was wrong. In our mail box was correspondence from USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) giving us our appointment for our biometrics fingerprinting, for January 17th! Merry Christmas to us, indeed!

As you may remember from my previous post you don't actually have to go ON your appointment date/time, but you do have to have the paper stating you actually have an appointment to get fingerprinted.Obviously, the USCIS branch was closed the next day, which was Christmas day and happened to fall on a Sunday, and on Monday as well, since that was the day the federal government set aside to "observe" Christmas. So on Tuesday morning we were on our way.






It was impressively quick. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes. The people were very nice. And now all we do is wait to receive our final approval from USCIS and we will be WAITLISTED!

So here we are, waiting.... Technically we are waiting to wait...

Oh my, I seem to be catching a theme here...

Until next time...
