It's a Christmas Miracle!!

So you remember how I said I went to get fingerprinted and I have no prints and they were going to fail and we have been waiting for a MONTH to find out so we can send our dossier to China? I prayed and prayed that my prints would pass because this is taking longer than usual anyway and we don't want to wait to get re-fingerprinted. Well, prayers are answered!

I got the letter in the mail today and everything passed! I am so grateful and happy! Next step: Dossier to China! Woo Hoo!

On a side note:

A woman just barged into my house and sold me a box of steak meat for for a large chunk of change. She should get saleswoman of the year! There was never a question, I was taking that meat!

Yipee! Yipee! Christmas miracle for sure! So glad you didn't have to go through the fingerprinting again only to be rejected! :) Enjoy the steak! I am so thrilled for you and Steve!

WOOHOOO! Can't wait to meet this little girl. I am sure her and Claire will be great friends :-)

So glad to hear it...I have been worried!!! (About your fingerprints, not that a strange woman would sell you steak meat). May I offer a suggestion? If you want to pay the money and lessen the headache, you might consider a China Doula? If you don't know, they are individuals who will take care of preparing your dossier (gathering documents, getting the appropriate certifications, etc) for you in supposedly less time. When we were considering China, we totally were gung ho to use one. Just thought.....happy times ahead!

Thanks Amy! The China Doula would be great but that is what our agency is doing and it is all done and ready to send, just had to wait for the fingerprint clearance.

Oh super duper....okay, then we are ON OUR WAY!!! She will be home before you know it ;)

I am so happy for you guys! Yeah for prayers that are answered! I'm so glad you don't have to go through the fingerprinting process all over again. Can't wait for you guys to make your trip to China to pick up your sweet little girl!
