A short update on the process stateside. Our USCIS approval and fingerprints expired. So after having our social worker update our homestudy, we sent off for an extension for each of the above. We received our fingerprint appointments in the mail on Monday. Fortunately, I was needed to go into Houston the following day. Therefore, Tuesday morning we drove into Houston and were able to be re-printed with minimal waiting (and a quick conversation with a supervisor) at a USCIS application processing center. That chore was completed in record time and now more patient waiting. It has been made easier (and harder) due to many other distractions, in and out of our family, and of course, the impending holiday season. We hope all new and waiting families have a blessed holiday season with an abundance of little ones finding their forever homes. That leaves out everyone else. So, y'all have a Merry Christmas, too, ya hear?
