Last renewal??

It is difficult to try to write something new to this blog after my previous post. The day we came back from Venezuela we supposed to get our fingerprints done for adoption, luckily my smart husband remembered hours before we left that we wouldn't be able to make it on time, so we requested a reschedule of bio-metrics. So lets look at the positive side, for anybody who needs to reschedule the fingerprints it is as simple as sending the appointment letter back and checking the box asking to reschedule. The date is moved about a month.

We got fingerprinted again Monday Sep-19, and the approval for the renewal arrived to our house on Saturday with date Sep-20! It took only one day to get us re-approved! Amazing!

Home Study and the USCIS approval have been notarized and have apostille. They are now on its way to our wonderful agency Adopolis to later be sent to Colombia, just to keep our records up-to-date.

So for any person out there who is still reading this blog (other than Megan, Hi Megan!), we are still in the process waiting for our Colombianito or Colombianita. Our hope is that this is the last time we have to go through the renewal process -I called our agency today to try to convince them of that... not sure it worked, but I took it out of my chest.

I just stole this cartoon from another blog. I just love the irony behind it. Yes, we are approved, but it is still a long way before we can reach our child, hopefully we don't have to fight alligators, boiling acid and marshmallows packed in ammonia!

OH.... I almost forgot! We bought a twin size bed for our child, and I put it together this weekend... YEAH ME! Now we just need to have a child :-)
