Great News!

I woke up to great news this morning!! The other passport has been printed!! Yay God!!

Of course, this news comes with a bit of a hitch. It just wouldn't be our adoption if it didn't.

According to our facilitator, beginning this week you have to keep your fingerprints current until the visas are issued. Our fingerprints expire on 8/23. I'm waiting to hear back on how likely it is to get our visas within the next four weeks.

Getting our fingerprints updated won't be a problem. We've done it before. The problem is in getting the updated fingerprints communicated to the right office in Haiti. It took me 2 months earlier this year to get our current updated fingerprints communicated to the right office in Haiti.

So, this is where you come in. We beg you for your prayers. Please join us in praying that our visas our issued before our fingerprints expire. God can totally do it.

I'll keep you updated on what I hear. Something to think about: If our fingerprints don't become a problem, our boys will be home in a month. WOW!!

I'm having problems with fingerprints too. Mine run out next Wed. The lady at the USCIS office in Haiti told me to get them updated but the office here won't set an appt because they say I don't need to. The office we have to go to is five hours away so I can't just run down and argue with them.

yeah! Will pray for the other thing...I can't even tell you how many times we have been fingerprinted - yet they can catch a criminal with 30 year old prints...

Just found your blog through a friend's. I don't know you, but I completely understand your anticipation, joy, and anxiety. We brought our son home from Ayiti 22 months ago after 15 months of wrangling with DHS, MOI, Parquet, and IBESR.
If your boys passports are done, that's it! The visas are a quick sure thing. Please email me if you'd like. I'm no rockstar parent, but my husband and I are a little further down the road in this crazy journey.
The Best to You All,
