We Got Our Finger Printing Done!

We went Monday to get our fingerprinting done for the USCIS.  Our appointment wasn't until June 10th.  We drove over 3 hours on Monday morning.  We took all 12 children with us.  We prayed that they would do them early.  I even prayed that the people working would wake up in a good mood and have a good day prior to our arrival!  lol

They did all 4 of our fingerprints very quickly.  They were very nice and complimented us on how well all of the children were behaving.  I was very proud of my kids.  They sat quietly and patiently.  You'd have never known that there were 12 kids in there. 

When we got done we took all the children to a different city about and hour and forty-five minutes away from there.  We went to the zoo and had lots of fun.  We will be going back to that zoo when Cody gets home. 

Our ride home was a little rough.  We got stuck (heading the wrong way) in rush hour traffic.  We then got very confused by Brent's gps while trying to find a Sonic to eat at.  We ordered our food and got to hear the tornado sirens go off.  We waited out the tornado warning and started home.  We got home close to midnight!  I am exhausted and heading to bed.

We Got Our Finger Print Letters

We got our letters from the USCIS telling us when to be fingerprinted.  It says on June 10th, but we've heard that you can walk in and get them done sooner.  We'll be giving that a try.  :) 

We also are hoping to be preparing for the arrival of Cody in June, so I don't want to be dealing with long drives for fingerprints then. 

The good news is that we have all 4 letters.  Say a prayer that we can get them done by walking in.  I'll let you know how it goes!  :)

Our stuff is headed to USCIS!  We have guaranteed delivery for tomorrow!  :)  Please pray that it goes quickly!  We can't wait to get through these steps and hold our children!  :)
