Fingerprint Updated FDL!!!

On December 23, 2011 (just 2 days before Christmas), we were super-excited to get a very special letter in the mail mixed in with all the Christmas cards!  And it was from...


It always feels pretty "official" to get letters from them! :) But we were especially excited to get this one because it was our...

Updated FDL!!! 

Remember when we had to go get our fingerprints done again a few weeks ago?  Well, this was basically the updated FDL saying that our fingerprints are now current again until early 2013.  So (for now) we are again updated on all of our USCIS paperwork. 

However, we will very soon start to update our home study and our FDL will have to be renewed again.  I know this is all pretty confusing, but that's just part of the beauty of international adoption paperwork!!! :)

I am just happy to be another step closer to our baby girl!  And I really am excited about getting started on our home study update.  We have been anticipating have to do this for several months now, so I am just ready to get it started and DONE!!! :)

Ya'll know I love a checklist, so I'll be updating as we get these home study steps checked off our list...AGAIN!!!  But she will be so worth it!!! 

"You hem me in behind and before, and You lay Your hand upon me."  Psalm 139:5

We are on our last update doc for our renewal, it seems so much easier than the original:)

We are almost to the point of needing to update fingerprints, and YES, it feels so wonderful to see the official envelope in the mailbox! Happy it arrived rather quickly and didn't get lost in all the holiday letters.
