Fingerprinting Appointment

David, Shelby, Jeremy, and I went to Atlanta today for our fingerprinting appointment. We are in the process of completing our paperwork for a new immigration approval (I171H). This form is required to show that you meet eligilibity requirements set forth by the Department of Homeland Security. This document basically shows that the CIS will give your child an immigration visa to the United States after the adoption is complete. Our first (original) I171H for Kaelie's adoption expires on June 13.

It was a rather uneventful day. We waited longer than expected, but we had a chance to meet a China Peaches family that was also there completing their fingerprints. The boys were very well-behaved. Hopefully, if our prints go through (they always have in the past), we will have our new document by the end of June. The immigration approval is good for 18 months.
