Spent an hour and a half at the immigration office today, or now as it's called the Office of Homeland Security. Got our fingerprints done. It's all sorts of high tech now. No more black ink rolling our prints onto a sheet of paper. It's all computerized. You roll your fingers on a little piece of glass and then it goes into the data base. No hiding now, we're logged in. I kept getting a "match warning" message. What does that mean? Does some other criminal have prints close to mine? That's gonna be a little hard to explain to our adoption agency. We're trying to get a baby here, no "match warnings" allowed. I ask the lady what that means...she doesn't know...but tells me it's okay...okay? Oh it better be okay. Nice work Homeland security!
Anyways, this constitues our FBI background check and then when all the paperwork is done, we'll get advanced approval to bring an orphan into the US. Whew..one more thing checked off. Once we get our passports(due any day now) and this immigration form, we'll fax it to our adoption agency and continue the wait..
