USCIS fingerprinting appointment

So I received work today that I need to have my fingerprints retaken, how depressing. On June 4th I go back to Milwaukee, and hopefully things work out. They did not say why I needed to redo it, they couldn't process the prints. Hopefully it works out.

On a brighter note, my agency said that they are now working with three other orphanages, which is wonderful news, as the wait for referrals should definitely be lessened. What a rollercoaster of emotions this process has been. I continue to be scared and excited all at once. I continue to research Ethiopia, and it is all so surreal. I can not believe that shortly I will be there, and be bringing home my own child. Wow!

USCIS fingerprinting appointment

They let me in for my appointment. I was in and out in a half an hour. I am soooo glad they let me in. One more last step that I have any control over. If all goes well, my paperwork should be in Ethiopia in a month. I am so happy and exhausted over the driving I did in three days. I am having my mother over for dinner today. Hopefully this will be my last mother's day without my child here.

Milwaukee appt.

I am going to Milwaukee on Friday for my prints. I really hope I can get in, one step closer!
