It doesn't look like much, but this is a VERY important piece of paper. It says that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS formerly INS) has approved my fingerprints. The actual language is below.I have faxed this to the adoption agency and now I wait. I found out today that the second medicals have been done; they are just having trouble transmitting them from Ethiopia to North Carolina so the agency can send them to me. Once I have those, I will pass them on to a pediatrician-friend to review (figured I needed an unbiased bare of eyes). Once I approve those, everything will be submitted for a court date. I could have a court date sometime in January. AAAACK!!! Am I really ready for that? I guess I will have to be. :-) I just pray that God will work things out so that I don't have to work much while taking time off to help the girls adjust. Well, as I have said before I will keep you posted as things progress.
