fbi surprise

This morning, I was reading the yahoo group for our agency, and people were posting about getting FBI fingerprints done. I didn't know what they were talking about, but I had a bad feeling, so I emailed C. She emailed me back this afternoon, and told me that we do need to get FBI fingerprints done. It will take 3-4 weeks to get the clearance, but we don't have to have it before our dossier is registered and our 1st trip. We just need to have it before we go to court. The prints are only good for 6 months, so if we had done them sooner, there would have been a risk of expiration. We're feeling a little frustrated, but it should turn out ok in the end.

Otherwise, our day went well. First thing this morning, we went to the doctor and had our lab work done. The nurse was wonderful. I didn't even feel the needle go in! She was done before we knew it. We gave her the medical forms to be filled out by our doctor, and hopefully, we'll get those back soon.

Then R. went to work and I went to the DMV. There was no crowd, and I didn't have to wait in line. Turns out they had assigned 2 different customer numbers to me. I signed a form saying that both customer numbers were one and the same person, and they got the account and address correct finally! The woman was very nice and helpful, and I was glad to get that straightened out. Now my tag has the correct sticker!

Nothing adoption related scheduled for tomorow! G. is coming over tomorrow afternoon, and I'm going to help her with her algebra. I'll enjoy seeing her and having some time with her.

Yeah, we found out about the FBI fingerprints a few days ago. Guess who was least thrilled about that in our house? Judy! She is so tired of fingerprints, and she hasn't even done the ones for USCIS yet. Now, she's stressing over the FBI set. Nice...

I'm glad the DMV & dr. visit went so well. One more check on your "to do" list!

Ana...be sure you put a date on the envelope that you need them back by. The FBI is pretty good about honoring that date for int'l adoption cases...at least they were back in 2005. We had ours back in 3 days then.
