What a week in our nations history! Many of you may have voted for our President-elect and many of you did not. Now history would have also been made if McCain and Palin won. I do have to admit for a family who is about to bring home our chocolate chip, it is amazing that our nation has an African American president- elect and what that will mean to our son.
On Wednesday morning Kellar and I were out the door by 6:30 am to head to Durham. We arrived at the USCIS office for our 8:30 fingerprinting appointment. After going through security we checked in, filled out more paperwork, and waited along with a couple who are adopting, and several others who were obviously not from the United States. I was called first. The fingerprinting is done on a glass plate connected to a computer. They used windex to wipe my fingers. They do a flat screen with 4 fingers then the thumb. Then they roll each finger, I had to redo several fingers as my print did not pass. On the other hand, Kellar passed with high scores for each finger. Then we filled out a survey and were done.
November is National Adoption Month
Things you can pray for our family:
1. quick paperwork processing
2. upcoming home study visit
4. unity in all decisions
5. Kellar's final weeks of teaching for the semester
6. our son in Ethiopia and his birth family
