Josh and I had our fingerprint appointment with USCIS this morning! We had to be in Birmingham at 8:00AM! Yes, that's alot. Up, dressed, kids disbursed and out of Tuscaloosa by 6:30! But, we made it with 10 minutes to spare!
USCIS stands for United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. In a nutshell, families who are adopting internationally have to fill out an application and send it to USCIS to be approved to adopt internationally. There's a lot that goes into it but the fingerprints were to conduct FBI background checks. We should be assigned an officer soon that will eventually send us our approval letter!
THIS IS THE LAST PIECE OF PAPER WE NEED FOR OUR DOSSIER TO BE SENT TO CHINA!!!!!
As you can imagine, we are very anxious for this to go smooth and FAST!
Other than today, we are just basically sitting around waiting on other people. That's not much fun, for it to be completely out of our hands.
BUT, WE COULD WORK ON NAMING HER! Yes, please!
We received an email from our agency yesterday and in that email it mentioned that we need to have her named by the time we accept a match! Which could happen at any time...so, yea, a name would be good.
