fingerprints and a (very) little news...

Saturday, October 1, 2011

We found out on Thursday that we didn't need to wait for our official date to have our fingerprints taken for the INS, but that we could show up anytime. So we did! David and I drove an hour-and-a-half to the INS office, were in the office for about 20 minutes, and then drove home. Hallelujah! It feels good to have one more step completed. I do think that with adoptions and working in schools, I've had about 20 sets of fingerprints taken in the past 20 years!

We also found out that the Joint Council will be back from Ind*a this week. They were in the state where our little girl lives and should have some answers for us very, very soon. The Ind*a coordinator at our adoption agency said that she was ready to get on a plane herself to get some answers. Me too! (Oh yes, I'd get on a plane today if I could!)

We love you so much, precious R. It's been a long wait (for offical approval), but we would never give up on you! You are a treasure and we can't wait to hold you in our arms. We are so grateful that R. is receiving abundant love and care where she is right now, but we also know that she will thrive most in a family. We are so ready to be her forever family!

Glad you were able to get your fingerprints done! When we adopted Sarah, we were supposed to wait for an appt, but our social worker told us to "plead our case" at the office (we live over an hour away) and they let us get our prints done that same day!
Hoping and praying you get some good news very, very soon!
