Our final round of fingerprinting will occur tomorrow morning at 8am in Elizabeth, NJ. Oddly (and fortunately) we both received the same timeslot which is not always the norm. The purpose of this is the very beginning stages of receiving authorization from both governments (US & Ethiopia) to issue a visa for our infant to travel legally; from leaving Ethiopia to entering the United States.
So, the alarm is set for 5:30am so we can catch the train and arrive at the office of U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services on time for our final round. These appointments are scheduled by their office in Washington, DC. It's basically part two of the I-600A form we submitted last month.
We'll be so happy once this is completed b/c after this, we're just waiting on the call from our homestudy caseworker. We have 98% of the paperwork for that completed so we are in a really great spot right now. Each step now gets us closer to moving out of the Paperchase stage and into the Waiting stage.
In other good news...70 degrees is in the forecast for Saturday. YES!
