This letter inviting us to come be fingerprinted by Immigration is one of 3 big steps we have left before we'll be on the waiting list to be matched with our little girl in Ethiopia!
The other 2 are:
- Still waiting on the FBI clearance, we sent our fingerprints to them (a lot of fingerprinting involved with adoption!) 7 weeks ago, but it seems most families are now waiting 8-10 weeks for their results instead of the 6 weeks or much less it used to take.
- Then all we'll need is final approval from CIS (Citizenship and Immigration) which we should get a few weeks after we go in for the fingerprinting this week.
